the component again, but I want to directly query the object model for it. So, I guess, it's
my personal problem and it enforces you to always use components to get and set data. And
I guess, I'm the only one again who wants to have more freedom when writing code...

No offense intented, but sometimes you have to restrict writing freedom 
to have maintainable code. And this is all what IoC is all about : code 
is not allowed to get directly the object model, but the object model is 
given by the container, thus enforcing a managed and controlled 
execution environment for the component.

+1 from me ;-)
