Could you please elaborate on that?

I always thought that when one makes system consisting of cohesive loosely coupled components, one has the possibility to simply (or relatively simply) change implementation of any of those components. It doesn't matter that it will never be done. To me, the fact that something is fairly easy switchable, means that it is relatively isolated which in turn indicate that it is decoupled.

Maybe I misunderstood you, so please feel free to correct me if so.
