Another way to take what I'm saying:  it'd be nice if this sort
of decision were ONLY a bundling decision.

By saying that the "default" output of a factory is defined to be
unusable in certain cases, you force each component to have some
otherwise unnecessary configuration support, OR (yeech) to hardwire
a parser choice.  The latter is sadly common, and the former can be
rather a lot of work.
