Extensibility -- a design that allows extending the core functionality to other uses or client types. Think in terms of the future -- how easy will it be for this component to be used by other programs or components, or in ways that are not envisioned in the original design?
For example, COM components with well-defined interfaces will provide more extensibility than procedures in a .prg, since COM components can be called from other languages and applications.
