Digit registry - minor api inconsitency

The add() and remove() method signatures are not consistent. You add a widget by passing a widget and remove it by passing the widget id. These two methods should probably accept either an id or a widget as in dijit.byId().

add: function(/*Widget*/ widget){...
remove: function(/*String*/ id){...

dijit.byId = function(/*String|Widget*/id){...

dijit.WidgetSet? could probably handle add: function(/* String|Widget*/ref) but dijit.registry cannot (despite it being a WidgetSet? instance). Chicken and the egg problem, dijit.registry powers dijit.byId, so trying to .add() a widget by Id to the registry would fail, as it isn't in the registry yet to do a byId lookup.

OK, I'm going to close this as "working as designed". Although we could make remove() also accept a widget, I haven't seen a demand for it, and of course it would slow things down and increase the code size a tiny bit.
