how would the container know which components had looked up which
other components? 

suppose component X looks up component Y but never releases it.

when disposing of X, the container knows that Y is "checked out" 
but it doesn't necessarily know that X is the component that has
it checked out.

unless you are suggesting the interface be changed to include a
callback reference to the requesting component.
