>             Project: Beam
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: beam-model

>            Priority: Minor
> SplittableDoFn is a proposed enhancement for "dynamically splittable work" to 
> the Beam model.
> Among other things, it would allow a unified implementation of 
> bounded/unbounded sources with dynamic work rebalancing and the ability to 
> express multiple scalable steps (e.g., global expansion -> file sizing & 
> parsing -> splitting files into independently-processable blocks) via 
> composition rather than inheritance.
> This would make it much easier to implement many types of sources, to modify 
> and reuse existing sources. Also, it would improve scalability of the Beam 
> model by moving things like splitting a source from the control plane (where 
> it is today -- glob -> List<FileBasedSource> sent over service APIs) into the 
> data plane (PCollection<Glob> -> PCollection<FileName> -> ...).
