It depends on whether the component is thread-safe. Some, like IBX
datasets, are. Some are not.
Either nil or a component created in the same thread. AFAIK there's
nothing threading-unsafe in the Ownership mechanism. But I generally
use nil when I create components in code, unless I have a really good
reason to use Ownership.
