Correction - this is a componet portability issue.  Merlin just happends 
to be the only container that addresses this issue.  Please explain how 
any container is going to handle the above valid and legal context type 
delcaration?  How will any container be able to support a context type 
and required entry declaraton in an ContonentDescriptor derived from the 
above without support for the declaration of context criteria in its 
application configuraton.  Keeping in mind that the solution to this 
issue has already been implememted independely of Merlin etc., is 
incoporated into the Merlin type model, and has been validated across 
lots of differnent applicatioin cases.

Secondly, I noticed that you neglected to expand on what you consider to 
be the one and only valid criteria for the inclusion of context criteria 
and look forward to (a) more details, or (b) unsnipping this question 
from you next eamil. :-)

Cheers, Steve.
