Geoffrey De Smet commented on CDI-87:

I don't think general <includes> and <excludes> alone are a good idea. *They break reuse and transitive reuse:*

If myProject's beans.xml <includes> seam-security's beans.xml then it will crash,
because seam-security's beans.xml 1.0 depends on seam-international's beans.xml (but seam-security's beans.xml 1.1 might not).

The point is, myProject doesn't care about seam-international: it uses a certain version of seam-security and anything that that version of seam-security needs, should be automatically transitively be included too.
Also, not using <includes> is not on option either, as myProject wants control over the beans.xml's that get activated (not just everything that happens to be in the classpath).
