Hmm, without block dependencies deployment becomes more difficult. How does the 
person who deploys the block know which other blocks are required to satisfy all 
requirements? Also auto-wiring that uses the default-value from block.xml 
doesn't work anymore.

Something else that I don't understand is how do we manage component namespaces 
in blocks? If I use <map:generate type="file" src="test.xml"/> it just works but 
what happens if the hint "file" is used several times in different blocks? (I 
guess the first or the last declaration wins.)
