You lost me there ... might want to reply privately, rather than choke up
the list on this aspect.

Isn't Nicola's reply to Serge + composable a good start?  A caveat is that a
base class (akin to the current GenericMailet, cousin to GenericServlet), or
small set of same, could provide common implementation for typical children,
so it is more likely that a typical "MyMailet" would be:

   class MyMailet extends SomeAbstractMailet {}

rather than directly decorate each child with Avalon Framework interfaces.
