Yes, I do see clear distinctions between introspecting the object
instance, the class and the component registry.
It is however completely evident that the similarity is great and that
the usefulness of integratinlig this into one whole from a user
perspective is very large.

For example:

- I would like to have a view on object instances that tells me the
attributes, and the annotations of an object.
- If the attribute is an object, you should be able to click on it to
get to that objects introspection view.
- The class of the object should be clickable, and then you would come
to the view that introspects the class, i.e., show all available
methods and doc strings.
- If the class is an Interface, you could click on a "registrations"
link, showing all components registered for that interface.
