I don't agree with this statement at all. Making things more flexible
incures a semantic dilution (not to speak of the added complexity
necessary to support that flexibility) that encourages users to just
'roll their own' solution.
I'm not saying that flexibility or genericity is bad. But it comes
with a price.
