      Description

      B> The issue with clientIds is that portions of the clientId are an
      B> implementation detail of the components and renderkit. The result is
      B> that developers are not supposed to be hardcoding clientIds into their
      B> code. Developers need a different kind of id that specifies context
      B> like a clientId, but is standardized like a findComponent search
      B> expression. Let's call this a contextId.

      B> Given a contextId, we would like to be able to do the following:
      B> 1) Efficiently convert the contextId into an object capable of
      B> establishing and tearing down the context for the component relatively
      B> efficiently. This would require new component apis.
      B> 2) Add a function like findComponentInContext that may return a proxy
      B> for the UIComponent executing in the context object from 1)
      B> 3) Since setting up and tearing down context on every attribute
      B> retrieval is inefficient--framework managed context so that the current
      B> context may be torn down lazily.
