But this doesn't solve the problem that many components are loaded into the 
spring app context by default. Having them into a seperate module makes it easy 
to exclude them. But of course than you can run into the situation that you only 
need one of them and get them all loaded again :-(

However, what we could do is introducing a rule that every *.opt.xml file in 
META-INF/cocoon/spring and META-INF/cocoon/avalon isn't loaded automatically but 
needs to be included explicitly.

Or a variation of this idea: In 2.2 *.opt.xml files are loaded and there is some 
configuration parameter to turn off this behaviour and in 2.3 it's the opposite.
Could this feature be easily added to the Spring configurator?
