[SNIP]

Your example here was a good one for some of the
capabilities this type of thing would have (besides
accommodating my enthusiasm for brevity).  Maybe we
could handle tasks/types with a single tag/class.  
<object> or perhaps <bean>?  Opinions?  I don't think
this qualifies as entirely replacing Magesh's proposal
since, as he implied, some developers may WANT to keep
the related "operations" or modes in a single
implementing class, for whatever reasons.  But either
would definitely work nicely with conditions.
