I think it's necessary to use Flyweight pattern for blocks in layout updates that does not have their own state information. In more cases when developer need only to display some template he uses a Mage_Core_Block_Template without any parameters for example

<block type="Mage_Core_Block_Template" name="my.banner" template="banners/some_banner.phtml" />

For such situation you can create "Context" object that will observe all parameters for block by his name. It can decrease usage of memory during displaying View part of system.

Thank you for the idea. Magento 2 team intends to optimize this part of view layer framework and your recommendation will be considered.
The improvements planned so far:

  • Ability to reuse an object that provides data for rendering block
  • Ability to break down a template into multiple without creating new objects that are related to its rendering

Although this comment provides our best view of the product direction, priorities can change and features may be adjusted. As a result, we do not recommend making firm business decisions solely based on the information above.
