Description Terry Therneau 2013-05-07 22:23:15 UTC
I commonly subscript the terms object in the survival package, most often to remove "cluster" or "strata" before calling model.matrix.  This action removes the dataClasses and predvars attributes.

I have special code to work around this at the moment, but it would be useful if these were retained.  I'm currently fixing a bug in survfit.coxph whose root is an error in my workaround.

At the least we need a reproducible example, and a patch which does what you want would increase a lot the chances of getting this fixed the way you want.
