public interface Serviceable

A Serviceable is a class that need to connect to software components using a "role" abstraction, thus not depending on particular implementations but on behavioral interfaces.
The contract surrounding a Serviceable is that it is a user. The Serviceable is able to use Objects managed by the ServiceManager it was initialized with. As part of the contract with the system, the instantiating entity must call the service method before the Serviceable can be considered valid.
