Either a callback or an injection sounds good to me. I thought again 
about this problem under my shower [1] and found that we must store this 
Registries/DS into each entry, to avoid passing this element in each 
method call. Any other solution has much more side effect :
 - a singleton is a no-go, because ADS is embeddable, and we don't want 
to define our own class-loader.
 - storing this info in a ThreadLocal seems too costly... (to be 

So I will try to implement David's trick, and may be Alex's one, if I 
have time. The reason I prefer David's idea is just because it's 
isolated, and deasy to implement.

[1] the most wonderfull thing about shower is that it's not only a place 
where you sing and wash, it's also a place you have the brightest ideas 
every day. I don't know why, but this is it. Sadly, we are wired with 
short term memory, and as soon as we get out of the shower, the towel 
acts as a memory eraser ;)
