The opposite design principal is to try to design things so that you
dont have to reemployment similar things over and over again.
I'm sure there are *some things* in ML that are 'general purpose' ... In
fact the *entire product* is general purpose, generally :).

There is a principle in agile programming named "You Ain't Gonna Need
It", or YAGNI. It means, only design and implement what you need.
Designing general-purpose mechanisms based on guesses about the future
makes the current code more complicated.
Usually, implementing exactly what you need makes it easier to implement
what you need next time.
