Hi Antranig, 

Thanks for sending this out. I think you're right that being able to make use of a components configuration is a basic requirement. Although I think we know that things aren't perfect at the moment. Meaning that the component may be hard to configure at times. However if we cannot make use of the configuration at all, as you mention, this should be a blocker.

Thanks
Justin

I wanted to start a brief discussion about the level of quality we would want to see in the implementation before we considered it was ready to ship.

I found during my work on the simplification demo that this is not possible with the component as it stands, even for the functionality committed to for this release. I think, for example, if we could demonstrate that the user could configure the "classnameMap" which is sent in to the UIEnhancer, this would go a long way towards demonstrating that component configuration was possible.
