When a mechanism can't get an appropriate user interface, it will
be used with malevolent intent. Better not make one.

Because that object would probably be a standard object from the
framework that implements the application, and that object would have a
different name in case the other framework is used too, I would not
use a standard name. Or it has to be implemented in the low level where
only bindings should dwell with all the issues that come from there and
clutter up this list;-)
