Despite I support your views on pushing the modularisation further,
I am as optimistic about pushing it wild
- even American Wrestling has rules :)

Eventually, things will have to integrate somehow, there will have to
be common conventions, formats, tools to make all the wild libs
running free behave at common table.
Someone will have to write those, or shop for them to avoid reinventing.

Such separation not practical I see.
