Matan Peled mentioned Perl. In Perl input data can be regarded as tainted and has to be untainted, so this relates nicely to the mentioned “taint analysis”. Blessing is used to create objects based on classes.

Do note Perl’s taint mode is nothing new, but has been in Perl for versions.

That is the exact mechanism I was referring to, and as you correctly note it’s nothing new. It looks like taint mode (The “-T” switch) has been in Perl since version 5.0, which was released in 1994.
