I am not sure that I can the total impact of what you are suggesting, but I 
would like to hear your thoughts on the following scenario;

I can create a Nexus that exposes an entire application as a directory tree 
through JavaBean patterns and reflection. I can also create a wrapper on  
legacy system and expose it as a nexus. IMHO, this has tremendous advantages 
for system integration work, especially between systems that are 
traditionally 'far apart'.

I truly liked the concept of a routing RootNexus, and Alex convinced me of the 
value for setups explained above.
IMHO, it doesn't look as easy as before to do the above with your proposal.
