Renaissance: initStarndardStaticNameTable question

In the initStarndardStaticNameTable function (GSMarkupBundleAdditions.m) there's a lookup of first the NSApplication class and then the "sharedApplication" selector. The class is then made to perform the selector using +performSelector:.

This gives a compiler warning on Mac OS X 10.3 with Apple's GCC 3.3, saying Class may not respond to +performSelector:. Obviously in this case it will, but I was wondering why it was done this way.

It should be possible to replace the whole lookup dance with

  [NSBundle registerStaticObject:[NSApplication sharedApplication]
                        withName:@"NSApp"];

shouldn't it? After all, initStandardStaticNameTable is always going to run after the NSApplication class is loaded; the only reason to do the kind of lookup the code is currently doing would be to prevent NSApplication from being loaded, isn't it?
