Why is parent_class declared static in the expansion? I don't think I've ever read where this is required or even a good idea.

because it's purely for the convenience of implementation code, there's no need to export that variable

specifically, it is used when chaining up to avoid needing to look up the parent class's class structure again, when it's rarely (if ever) going to change. (saves a couple of hash lookups and function calls.)
