It is equiv to your guys allowing Mailets to be Serviceable (I know, I 
know), and tehy could look up other mailets, but not the core of JAMES 
.. the comps/blocks that make JAMES itself.

As it happens I have an escape mechanism in EOB to allow that too 
sm.lookup("phoenix:BeanRepository"); but I think I should get rid of it.
