Taking 5 or 6 concepts (interfaces?) and trying to tie them together can 
get quite messy in Java. C++ could use multiple inheritence. While that 
would work it also brings along all the problems all the problems 
multiple inheritence introduces.  I'm sure there are other languages 
that might tie these concepts better, but off hand I can't think of one.

I'm also sure there are some interesting ways to do this in Java. 
Whether they end up being complicated (either to maintain or use) 
remains to be seen.

I'm all for letting whoever wants to move forward on this and see what 
they come up with. But I won't be willing to accept it until it supports
