I think we select whichever model makes the most sense and adapt accordingly.  I ended up using both models in the util code.  E.g. an IP based AV wraps around a more basic util AV, but the CQ uses function pointers for hooks.  Likewise, in some cases, I expect the native provider will use the util code as a building block, whereas another provider will just have the util code do all of the work.
