You're assuming that frameworks other that OSGi cannot do hot deploy,  
but yes the general idea is to have something akin to POJOs with no  
extends/implements/throws from any framework and optional enablers to  
other frameworks in separate classes or module etc.

It has to be said though that OSGi is on a different branch of the  
IoC family tree to DI favoring frameworks.
