I didn't noticed it. That should be removed - there is no need
for it. 

I'll change my vote on the release of discovery to -1 until this gets
fixed. It should implement the 'services' spec but 
shouldn't define any API for the services to implement.

It shouldn't. Various applications that use discovery may define 
lifecycle - for example JAXP defines how a parser is created ( factory, 
etc ), ant defines the lifecycle of a project helper, etc. That's between
the application and the components, discovery must only find the classes.
