Are you sure they need to be components?  Anything can implement  
#renderOn:, but only subclasses of WAComponent need to appear in  
#children.  If you don't need the various methods and hooks  
WAComponent provides (like #call:, #updateRoot:, #updateUrl:), then  
your controls can be simple subclasses of Object instead.
