Ehm, why do you need an extra marker interface for this? The 
Source interface has already these methods: 
    String getParameter( String name );
    long getParameterAsLong( String name );
    Iterator getParameterNames();

So, you ask a source for any information, e.g. the height or 
anything else and if the source supports this information,
you will get it.

I think we should really avoid this flood of additional
source marker interfaces.
