You already got some solutions; I'll just add some comments.

Not really. The issue lies in the fact that the context of an object
isn't dynamic; you can't add or remove things. The global context in
REBOL is the only special case of a dynamic context I believe.
You can get tricky and work around it, by including a block in your
object and using that as kind of a sub-context--because blocks are
resizable. I think Ladislav or Joel posted a dynamic object example
here at one time. I didn't find one on REBOL.org in a quick search,
maybe somebody submit one if they have it handy.
