It doesn't. The whole point of having two stages -- discovery and
activation -- is that discovery is an automatic side-effect of
installation, whereas activation can be controlled by an
application-specific policy or configuration file.
Entry points (as currently implemented) are discovery; the
application then determines which entry points to actually load or
invoke, using its own configuration (or command-line options, or menu
selections, or automatic policy, or whatever else).
