Is it going to be easy to add in new scoped services?

Are you thinking of merging just the implementations, and leaving the 
interfaces the same, or merging the service interfaces as well?

It might be a good thing to try to fuse the interfaces together, so that:

- There's some way to get at type meta-info, as can be done with RoleManager + 
- There's some way to lookup a role using a shortname, as can be done with 
TypeManager + TypeFactory.
- For the purposes of deploying, roles can be treated as meta-types, and 
deployed the same way as types.
