In truth, I wasn't much of a fan of the whole "start" flag in the first 
place. I think OBR should be a deployment tool only. I think it should 
be kept as simple as possible, but no simpler to its job. We can create 
another tool to manage the run-time life cycles of bundles...

Imagine some tool that allowed you to use OBR to deploy a resolved set 
of bundles and assign a name to that resolved set of bundles. Then you 
could use this tool to start/stop/uninstall that named set of bundles, 
for example.
