Yes, I mean I would assume that you can have ODDs written exactly 
as before and saying <moduleRef key="foo"> then you want the 
entire module and whatever is it in the future.  If instead you 
only want certain elements you wouldn't have the moduleRef at 
all, and instead just have lots of elementRefs.  Or am I 
misunderstanding the mechanism?
