Micro modules anyone?

At the moment i follow this interesting blog series about modularizing applications. Also I'm playing around with FunFx and Cucumber for functional testing flex applications.
One problem with functional testing is to navigate to the view you want to test. Maybe you need to login first and click a few menu items before you get to it. What if something changes in these areas. It might break all you functional tests for a otherwise unrelated view. I think it would make sense to create applications containing this one view only, so you don't need to navigate to get there. Now what if this view was in a module of its own? This way it could be used in the tests and in the app.

I wonder if somebody has experience in building Flex apps from such micro modules, ie. Modules which contain a very small part of the application?
