This paper presents a discussion on the use of the DEVS formalism with the goal of studying how DEVS (or one of its derivatives) could support sharing modeling patterns. We address this open issue and present a discussion of this field that can be addressed by the DEVS community. On one hand, we describe the benefits and possible uses of sharing sub-components for component-based modeling; on the other hand, we explain why supporting such shared sub-components conflicts with the DEVS formalism.
