Alex, first, thanks for that memory breakdown, very helpful.

What if when setting the composited piece you always stored a hard
reference to all the functions, so something like this:

private var setFocusFunction:Function;
public function set focusBehavior(value:IFocusBehavior):void {

this.setFocusFunction = value.setFocus; //where setFocus() is a function


and then when needing to set the focus, UIComponent calls
this.setFocusFunction() instead of calling focusBehavior.setFocus()

Since now the function is stored in UIComponent, does that get around the
perf. problem of always calling a proxy like focusBehavior.setFocus()?
