an interesting point

i see no reason why a component should be discounted just because it
implements a specification but what we're looking for is a good
component which happen to be useful for a specification. this is
associated with the naming: we're more interested in a good lightweight
state machine library than the fact that it can be loaded from a SCXML
document. stephen's point about the naming is related: the component
should be a lightweight state engine first and foremost. so
commons-state would be more descriptive.
