Define as a component anything that is likely to change 

Defining something as a component allows other developers quickly change the implementation. For this reason, you should define anything that is likely to be changed or customized later as a component. For example, define your apps and subapps as components. Views are also common customization points so define the views returned by subapps as components. Any components you define are available for injection. This is also true for components further up the hierarchy in parent components.
