As far as I can tell, the subjects of "creating objects for everything" and "passing certain parameters by reference" are completely independent of each other. For instance, Oberon and Modula-3 mandate GC, yet also allow integers to be passed by reference without creating new objects to hold them. Java is far from the last word in either GC design or call-by semantics...
