Lets see - I can think of two reasons ;)

* Your cease to separate directory and resource management code and thus 
you end up with a ugly "release()" method on your directory interface 
(despite the fact that only a handful of people ever use it).
* You get people who complain that ServiceManager not fast enough and then 
want the rest of us to add in extra ugly code so they can continue to 
misuse the interface
