> I disagree here. I think XML config is fairly core to a DI model, and so belongs in CDI. However most other stuff does not belong in CDI. In fact some of the integrations specified in CDI 1.0 for Java EE probably belong elsewhere. We're starting in CDI 1.1 to move these out to a separate part of the spec doc, which may eventually lead to them becoming totally separate.
Ah yes, I was generalizing a bit too much here.
Also I was unaware of the plug points of the core XML.

Kudos, that you can put a core concern in an extension. ;-)
