It looks interesting - I keep wanting to using aspects.

It would be good if you could expand the below two points in the document
(or provide links to discussion on them):

"This is a double edged sword though, too much expressiveness in the
point-cuts can lead to surprising behaviour." [what behaviour?]

"Exposure of context has been explicitly dropped, because it violates the
obliviousness principle." [what is "exposure of context" used for? What is
"obliviousness principle"?]
