I would actually think Weld could/should expose this, not CDI.
As exposing TM is definitely not per spec, hence not CDI's "business".
Otoh, building Tx based Seam3 components would again depend on Weld workaround; e.g. Seam
TM also exposes XAResource handling, for which TxServices don't have matching api.
And like I said, there is also suspend/resume Tx API, which sometimes also comes in
If TxServices::getTM returns an actual TM instance, then Weld could expose it as a bean.
But purely optional from the Services implementor --> null TM == no TM bean.

I'm not 100% sure what you mean, as TransactionServices exposes
services to Weld which uses them to (a) expose UTX as a bean and (b) register for
synchronizations for TX events. So just adding TM to TransactionServices won't do very
much ;-), you would also need to expose TM as a bean. Weld could do this, but in general
in Weld we've tried to avoid exposing built in beans (especially for standard APIs)
which aren't spec defined as this could interfere with other people. So better to
propose this for CDI 1.1 IMO.
