I don't think the point was about "preventing other components". It is
around enabling other implementations.
The question was - is there a generic framework with the Netscaler
implementation being one exemplar or instantiation of the framework.
If so, we would want the FS and API to be structured around the framework
first and detail how the Netscaler implementation realizes (extends /
implements/plugs in) to the framework.
