I highly recommend taking the model instance and stashing it (as is  
being done already), rather than making an attribute on the context  
object, as this is less flexible...

I.e. if you are saying [% c.model('Foo').thing %] or [% c.foo.thing %]  
then this is less flexible (as you can't override foo for part of your  
site) than $c->stash(foo => $c->model('Foo')) in your perl code, then  
[% foo.thing %] in your template.
