Thats how we originally had it. However a dependency also has attributes 
and it felt a bit wierd that a dependency had attributes and that the 
service definition inside dependency also had attributes.

It now looks like

   <service classname="FooService"/>
     <attribute ...>

so attributes are associated with dependency directly rather than via 
service reference.
