I think loading classes directly via new (as opposed to factories +  
interfaces) should be discouraged as much as possible, as it creates  
unnecessary coupling.

Depending on the classloading mechanisms that are implemented,  
selective filtering of what is allowed could be implemented easily I  
think [1].

Do you have examples where direct instantation via "new" is required?
