Just to let you in on a little history, Avalon was designed with this
type of analysis in mind.  Stefano, Federico, and Pier had gone so far
as to name the parts after the theater names:

Component        -> Actor
ComponentManager -> Director

You can see the evidence in the Cocoon 1.x tree :)

I have found the thought process to be really helpful.  Of course, I
don't always add dialog--but it was fun.
