Close.  It is so they can be extended reliably and warranted for 
the extension where the remainder of the model is warranted by 
denoting conformance to the model.  It enables risk to be managed 
not by whole, but by named parts.  Note this is related to the
Quality Of Service issues of web services as well.

On the other hand, a completely proprietary application or system 
must be warranted whole.  Some will choose that direction because 
they will claim they can manage the development, thus the risk, 
better.  Others will choose collaborative means by which the 
bugs are exposed to more eyes and therefore are exposed earlier.
The problem of that means is the signatory to the warranty.  One 
assumes, in the example of open source, it will be the vendor 
selling the system, not the programmer or individual contributor. 
The matter of IP is separable but related in that it is a 
risk to be managed.  It is the means 
of grounding the symbols in the warranty to the behaviors of 
the warranting source that should be explored.
