[vtk-developers] vtkAxesActor - question of design

I have very nearly finished up with 3 classes to
contribute, as alluded to in previous postings this month,
that will afford orientation markers to VTK.
I have re-worked vtkPVAxesActor somewhat and in
implementing the text component, have currently 
kept it as vtkVectorText and a vtkFollower.  
Another way to do this that offers more flexibility
to the user API is to instead use vtkCaptionActor2Ds,
as Goodwin Lawlor showed, since one can make use of 
vtkTextProperty: more fonts etc. etc.  Since this 
class will likely supplant vtkPVAxesActor, does 
anyone, especially those working on Paraview,
 have any thoughts?
BTW, this text flexibility cannot AFAIK be extended
to the other marker class: vtkAnnotatedCubeActor,
which also makes use of vtkVectorText.
