I think certainly we need them for the REST components too. It's very 
common one wants to generate a URL when writing a RESTful protocol.

Sounds reasonable. We practically have that mixin class already in the 
form of components.View in grok. The only differences are that it's a 
mixin and doesn't have the flash() method.
