Subject Re: Flex modularity through composition and interfaces

This is just a weird thought and I have no opinion on DI since it's  
like religion to most.

Isn't the idea of OOP polymorphism, and the way you create it is  
through abstract interfaces? Correct me if I'm wrong here.

Maybe I am from another planet but it seems to me, that the strength  
in Apache is to allow a democratic approach to creating a protocol  
agreed to by the majority of the community.

What is the problem on agreeing on some interfaces that could be put  
in the core, for other outside DI libraries to implement.

In this way, you would have a standard but allow anybody to create  
there own implementation. At the same time without having a concrete  
implementation IN the SDK you could still use the interfaces that  
could provide "sockets" for DI without the dependencies.

Just a thought, this is the same thought I have about component design.
