Because if you are working with, say, 10 people on a team, and you will 
have everyone merrily doing direct hash accesses, sooner or later, 
someone's going to fuck it up and something will break in a spectacular 

If you have methods to do this, the methods can check various things, 
and throw out the proper errors.

Yes, a little bit of overhead -- the cost of hardware to compensate for 
this overhead is still less than the cost of a fuckup that will keep 
your app bugging for the rest of it's lifetime.
