Procedural Pascal was great, it was much better than plain machine language.

Yet, this hasn't stopped the development and adoption of Object Pascal...

Let alone Delphi ;-)

In short: even though you can develop what you want using procedural
Pascal, does that mean Object Pascal shouldn't have been developed?

Just because you can think of terrible examples with Schemas, does that
mean Schemas cannot be put to good use?
