Yes. It returns the one and only global registry.
If so, how come it's not called getGlobalComponentRegistry?
Because component registries used to be called site managers and we
can't just change the API at this point anymore.
How do you set up nested registries? For example, if a certain area

only for that area, and should fall back on it if not adapter could
You use sites. Sites are places (usually containers) in the component
hierarchy that have (local) component registries associated with them.
And yes, the name "site" is misleading, but again, we have it as

explained in my book. I'm sure you have a copy :)
