my argumentation is primarily short-term/pragmatic:

starting at two observations:
1/ this is cool stuff and as far as I can see the reactions just about 
everyone here is salivating and wants to interact with that code

2/ the block-unit is the only thing our current infrastructure is 
offering to efficiently and atomically snap in and out certain functionality

Taking this pragmatic view I can't see but a lot of similarity between 
this block and a lot of others...

IMHO, were this block will take us in the future is not the question 
here and now..
