I generally only event us [Inject] & [MessageDispatcher]

Parsley is wonderfully flexible, but that flexibility adds drawbacks,  
but obviously you aint gotta use it all, just difficult enforcing that.

Never really understood why why there is a separate tag for  
MessageDispatcher and why you could just use inject and type the prop  
as an IMessageDispatcher. Guess its so you don't call a method on an  
instance, you just invoke the method injected.

So I'm not suggesting we support a shed loads of new tags (although  
Metadata being a first class citizen would be a huge move forwards),  
but just officially support [Inject].
