I kept in mind where writing this that this approach doesn't completely
fit to the current model. We can split this approach to the following 
1) Behavior
2) Realization

I think that proposed behavior better than current. Also this approach fits
good for the tasks with multiple possible realizations.

And task realization. It can be selected after behavior approval. I tried
to avoid myself from bicycle reinventing and proposed the way like
ORB class works. 
Yes, I do not want to argue about current taskdef realization. I found
it very original and well thought-out. But for idlToJava-like taskdefs may
be better to review the initial behavior and approaches?

Thank you.
