Is there anything else? Is there anything _not_ subjugated to the goal
of compositionality?

I ask this because it seems that systems like ScalaZ are so utterly,
extremely single-minded in their pursuit of this notion of composition
that every other concern has been sacrificed.

Yes. There is concession all the time.

The goal is single-minded devotion to practical application and
sacrificing from the ideal only to the extent necessary, mandated by
external influences rather by personal ignorance (which, if that
personal ignorance is the barrier, it becomes the target).
