Chris,

Let me make sure I understand what you are asking for.  It seems that
you want to list the resource seperate from any of the configuration
tables.

Second you want to make the mappings between modules/resource/entities
as many:many:many.  Based on this understanding I would support this.
I have felt that the relationships between resource and entities should
be many:many.  The first thing that it would provide is the ability
to seperate entities so that each entity can be managed seperate.  In
other words we no longer need a brouter component we can have seperate
bridge entity and router entity each managable in it's own right.  This
would seem like a big win to me.  

What to others think of the idea.
