Inserting a value into a XComponentContext

So what about the following approach:

Reference< XComponentContext > xContext =
::cppu::ContextEntry_Init aContextInfo[] =
    ::cppu::ContextEntry_Init("testkey", uno::Any() ),
xNewContext = ::cppu::createComponentContext(aContextInfo,
sizeof(aContextInfo) / sizeof (aHandlerContextInfo[0]), xContext);

Then to get access to the container, I use something like this:

Reference< container::XNameContainer > xNameContainer( xContext, UNO_QUERY

Is this the right approach? Will the delegate ComponentContext work?
