I agree. Actually I thought of 'modelling time' :)

This is ok, when you only consider components living in an environment 
in which dynamic port creation/destruction is possible and/or easy to do.
If you also consider other environments this might not be possible and 
would rely on code gen.
Maybe its also solvable by allowing dynamic connections (but not dynamic 
ports) between components (?).
