What is the best approach for handling the ENTER_FRAME / TIMER and rerendering elements?

At the moment I have got this View structure on the stage:

- RobotView
- RobotView
- RobotView
- RobotView

I am not sure if this is good idea -> I keep RobotView refrence in RobotModel.

The WorldModel handles the TIMER:

private function onTimer( e:TimerEvent ):void
for ( i = 0; i < _robotModelVector.length; i++ ) _robotModelVector[ i ].handleNextFrame();

Is this way any good?

    Generally it's good idea to have a signal mapped as signalton that dispatches on contextView's ENTER_FRAME. Signals are much faster than events and you can inject them into every mediator you want and add e.g. public view's handlers to them. That's the most performant idea I have now. The same about TIMER, ofc if you have more than one handlers for that events.
