yep. But thats basically the same as we have over in avalon land wrt 
DefaultConfigurationBuilder. We started out with a simple version of that but 
quite a few times we have had to change it and it has been ugly the way we 
did it (but we needed to do it that way to keep backwards compatability).

The clone tree could probably go on the ModelElement. I will stick it on
