Maybe I misunderstand what you're trying to accomplish, but the 
instantiation and registering should only be necessary if the host app 
wants to make particular objects -which originate in the host- 
available to the script. If the objects don't have to originate in the 
host (because the host needn't access them), you should be able to 
create them in your script. How exacly that's done depends a bit on 
which scripting language you're using. Take a look at the "scriptedui" 
example that comes with BSF: the Java host registers a bean, but 
several more Java objects -which the host needn't care about- are 
instantiated in the script (e.g., ui.js for JavaScript).

Hope this helps.
