Not convinced on the topic concerning changes to the exception model.

+1 on meta-data info in framework.
Somewhere between 0 and -1 on formalization of container in framework 
(more discussion on that is needed).  My own view is that a container is 
implementation and I don't see a requirement for anything structural at 
the framework level - as distinct for convinience tools, utilities and 
default implementations in Excalibur.

Don't like the sound of this bacause it will force the introduction of a 
container defintion into the framework and I don't thing that's a good 
thing to be doing.

+1 assuming we are talking about for formal usage and association of the 
org.apache.avalon.framework.Version class with a component.

on another thread.

So far so good.
