The problem is that the service lifecycle methods are invoked upon
service load and unload. At that time there's no instance of the service
class around (unless the scope of the service was application in which
case it could). As such having these methods in the service class
creates an awkward lifecycle for the service class itself. (I'm
presuming that you don't want it new'd and free'd just to invoke the
service lifecycle methods.)
