fine. I can see a problem with this approach however:
All properties are retrieved from an 'UMLView' instance,
and so it is hard to add shape-specific properties.
In other words, the current approach is not extensible
since all initialization passes through a central hub.

Of course the prototype pattern alone won't help here
as it doesn't define how and where the prototypes themselfs
would be created. An (abstract) factory may help here.

What do you think ?
