Do you have to load addins explicitly?

I'd like to use the MAF, but most of my addins will be loaded from xaml by the XamlReader.  If it can't new up a type, it throws a XamlParseException.

Once you load an addin assembly, can you new up instances like any other type, or do you have to jump through hoops?

It is easy to confuse the two, but MEF is not the same as MAF.  Here are some MAF links:

MAF on MSDN: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb384200.aspx
Codeplex site for MAF tools and samples: http://www.codeplex.com/clraddins
