Sorry, for that: the message call was added for diagnostic purposes,
it's not meant to be installed.  The "name" arg passed during creation
of objects is obsolete, tho.  But I don't know yet how to tell
programmers about it (that's why I just added a `message' for now, so
that I could tell when the name was detected and dropped).

Right, but only when set via eieio-object-set-name-string.

eieio-object-name definitely should return the name, but the name passed
during clone&creation is indeed just thrown away (since AFAICT 99% of
those names are dummies).
