Yes it does. Now that may just be because of a cross-pollination between 
Felix (formerly known as Oscar) and KF. And Felix also defines a 
"module" protocol which gives access to resources within the current 
bundle (AFAIU, a "module" in Felix is a bundle instance).

Yup! For my particular case, it required me to dig in the spec and cross 
check my understanding in implementations!
