We should learn, I think, that object-oriented ontologies are typically not robust under theory change. What seems to be more robust are structure-oriented ontologies …
I think the argument against radical ontic structural realism based on the slogan “no relations without relata” assumes a set-theoretic understanding of structure. In set theory, perhaps, it makes sense to say there can be no relations without relata (given typical extensional definitions of relations, at least). But there are other formalisms that you might consider in trying to develop a concept of structure. In particular, category theory seems to suggest a notion of structure that can be divorced from relata.
