    [ https://issues.jboss.org/browse/CDI-14?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12600695#comment-12600695 ] 

Pete Muir commented on CDI-14:

This has been one of the biggest complaints I have heard about the CDI spec so far (actually Mark, you're the only person I've heard so far say we shouldn't make this a single call).

A couple of specific comments:

* BM is primarily intended as an SPI for providing access to CDI in unmanaged instances, so if we need to add better support for providing injection in unmanaged instances (see above) then BM is the right place to do it.
* instance() is indeed sufficient as Instance() allows fluent selection anyway.

Anyone else have an opinion on this?
