Of course, I just wanted to be sure about the options. I appreciate a 
lot you help and your clarifications and I hope that also the uses cases 
of the developers integrating ManifoldCF can help the community to 
improve it by addressing (or not :->) the proposed issues. From my side, 
I'm going to further investigate how the framework works at code level 
to see if I can extend the Transformation connector workflow for 
allowing resources initialization from Connectors Configuration and 
Output Specificiation.
