I agree the property should be there. But is there a special reason you 
want to remove it
form the Initializable. For me it was a cheap way to get the outher 
representation (I did not
know this was not always the case).

Maybe we should even get stronger: service-interfaces must implement a 
Threadable marker. There are also differences
in the usage. Especially if a Service holds state. (However I am not sure 
about that. It is a question of the contract.)

You are right marker interfaces are not nice if you see JD 1.5 on the 
horizont. The question is wheter we want to wait with this until we don't 
need JD 1.4 compliance anymore.
