The implication is twofold:

1. If widgets are to use one of these storage mechanisms, then we need  
to say what (instead of origin) the storage is scoped by, and how a  
widget acquires an instance.

2. As far as security policies are concerned, this suggests that we  
are acquiring an additional set of complexity earlier than I had
