Perhaps the term "Value Object" is not as clear as "Transfer Object".
Basically, the model should be where you keep the data and VOs/TOs are
what you use when you want to transfer/move data to carry out a unit of
business logic. The idea behind a VO is that it contains all the data
necessary to carry out a specific unit of business logic.
Both of them getting registered via the same class is actually
confusing. I need to refactor that so that the name is more generic.
