Putting something into framework is a lot more to do with the definition 
of the Avalon component lifecycle model.  It really does not matter if 
the intention is to expose this during the lifecycle phases or not - the 
thing is that if it goes into framework it becomes part of framework.

The alternative is to put it into Excalibur Configuration along with the 
other configuration additions - such as:

   - CascadingConfiguration
   - ConfigurationUtil,
   - NamingConfigurationBuilder
   - the config merger and split helpers
   - and the config validation stuff.
