As seen in e.g. https://github.com/TYPO3/TYPO3.CMS/blob/TYPO3_6-2/typo3/sysext/extbase/Classes/Object/Container/Container.php#L167 (Container::getInstanceInternal(), if($classInfo->getIsInitializeable() && is_callable(array($instance, 'initializeObject')))), calling $classInfo->getIsInitializeable() appears to not be enough to determine if $instance->initializeObject() can be called. This seems wrong by design.

Maybe ClassInfo::getIsInitializable() should take an instance as argument? Or should there be a public Container::getObjectIsInitializable($instance)? If the is_callable() call is necessary to avoid bugs, then there definitely needs to be an API method for it.

What exactly is the bug you encounter. What exact feature do you miss? Why do you bother at all? There is only one place where this is needed and used and there is no easy fix. I'd just keep it like that unless there are good and obvious reasons to change this API
