Some random comments:

- I am glad our URL-scheme for subviews/portlets is pretty much identical. 
However, this shows me again, that subview's purpose is far above that of 
content providers and viewlets.

- You solve your render-bug problem using a container. If we could make this 
more of a conceptual container that simply collects all views to be used in a 
site, then I think this could work very well with content providers and 
viewlets. This is indeed a hard issue. Right now I see no way how you could 
flexibly provide additional subviews simply by registration, i.e. solve the 
viewlet/viewlet manager use case. I really want to talk to you over a 
higher-bandwidth medium about this.

I think this can only happen, if we can get Roger, Benji, you and me at the 
same location for a couple of days. Our ues cases are somewhat different, but 
all equally important, especially the "update bug" of yours.
