I agree, your comment is on point!

I would stress that ideally a dumb component should never access a service for state.

Of course I am quite sure there are situations where a service could be needed

haha I had dumb component written but changed it to view only component. I felt as if dumb may be offensive. Im not sure why components don't have feelings =)

Thanks to you both. The considerations for I/O vs a service make much more sense to me now. Like most thing in programming (and life), it depends!
