data that is scoped to a single object

If you make this data hidden/private it would make a difference because than only the Obj and its Subclasses could access those data and the Data would be encapsulated ...
But if you take an Object .. add a Property and use/chance that Prop anythere you like it in your application ... where is your encapsulation you are talking about !?
