Well, O'Caml supports the use of objects and classes in those instances
where subtyping or multiple implementations are necessary.  For O'Caml to
"support object-oriented programming", it is not necessary that every data
structure and module also be encapsulated in some class.

There's no need for everything to be an object, and i don't really see
what that would buy you in the long run, since O'Caml doesn't have any
"top" or "top-like" type, like Java's Object.  Why do you want the standard
library's functionality replicated in object form?
