Certainly, <preference> might not be the right approach... but I think 
it is ok to enable an API through <feature> to accept arguments, which 
scales nicely. Anyway, looking forward to discussing this further in the

As a side note, if you would like to include your implementation in the 
implementation report for widgets, we are currently gathering test suite 
results. Email me off list and I can give you all the details.

Kind regards,
Marcos
