Additionally consider the case of "configuring" services shared across multiple SessionFactory instances; for example imagine changing the option to enable sql logging on the JDBC Service.  Of course maybe that is what the user wants/intends so its nice from that perspective.
Yes but at least intuitively, I think the more simple Service contract (ie allowed to keep direct state) is preferable to the extra flexibility.
