In C++ no, because C++ classes are not instances of an accessible class (a Meta-Class) and because C++ classes are not accessible to programs. Classes are objects in 3 Level Systems and above because classes are instances of meta-classes. But classes play a dual role, because objects can only be declared to be instances of a class (and class objects instances of a meta-class). In 1 Level (single-hierarchy) systems, all classes are objects.
