Componantized linux?

At the edge of sounding daft, what are the current opinions on Progeny's Componentized Linux [http://platform.progeny.com/componentized/index.html]?

To me it seams that the componentized model would be more fitting for a desktop distro. You could even just use a base sarge install and add the componants needed for a desktop install.

gnome2.6 - for those wanting to test it out

I know it is possible to do these things in the current monolithic distro model, but have the distro more componentized would allow for easier upgrades to say gnome2.6 kde3.2 etc. The user would not have to wait for a new release of the distro, they would just signup for the new component.
