With ZCA, you can register components temporarily for a test. You can
create a short-lived component registry. You can create multiple
registries for different parts of the application. You can store
registries in a database. Whatever makes sense.
With entry points, can you do any of that? Entry points seem far more
limiting. Please correct me if I am wrong.
