The implementation is not efficient (a simple example: the 
getResources() method, which was cut & pasted from DefaultContext 
probably, is not appropriate for components which live inside the 
container - use Context.getResoruces() instead), but it's not a big deal 
as far as I am concerned as I intend to eventually implement a more 
efficient mapper.

Has the spec wording been fixed ?
