I tend to agree with you (I prefer @pattern) but at this early stage I can live with using class for this.

I was also thinking about fine-grained providers, I hadn't considered coarser ones. I'm guessing that since you can filter on service type with class/pattern/whatever, it's fine to be coarse at that level. Again, that's some level of variance that we can look at if we have a prototype to look at.
