Arne Limburg commented on CDI-14:

We even could go a step further and provide an interface to the application developer without the need of a bean-manager.
What about adding the following class to the spec:
public class ObjectInstance implements Instance<Object> {
    private Instance<Object> delegate;

    public ObjectInstance() {
        //lookup bean-manager via JNDI,
        //get Instance<Object> from bean-manager
        //and set delegate

    //methods are delegated to the delegate
Every CDI-user could instantiate this class and use it to get contextual instances.
