First, I was a bit confused and though the "PearSpecifier" would be
this guy here [1]. The I realized it is this one [2].

Looking at where the parameters of the PearSpecifier are used: apparently the
setParameter and getParameter are only ever called directly in unit tests.

Does it mean that the frameworks so far does not make any use of these parameter
as all? Or maybe they are used via some inherited methods...?

It sounds reasonable to me that these parameters are forwarded to the top-level
component in the PEAR - the question I am asking myself is though: why doesn't
this already happen and (maybe) what else where these PearSpecifier parameters
intended to do then?
