seems to me that we spend most of our time trying to fix bugs in the component
model, in particular the area of composition. The engineer in me wants to find a 
simpler solution rather than continue to add more sticky tape and chewing gum.
i'm drawn to the idea of spec which is focused on the document rather than the 
processing model, even if that meant losing import (but keeping a lexical include).
