Styling zest graph nodes and connections

I wish to change some visual properties of nodes and connections. How better can it be done? I found that visual information is applied in model factory that is returned from

org.eclipse.zest.core.viewers.GraphViewer.getFactory()
. There are three factories and all are placed in internal package
org.eclipse.zest.core.viewers.internal
.

Is it good approach to override
org.eclipse.zest.core.viewers.GraphViewer.getFactory()
and return own factory that does all necessary styling actions?

Answer

There is interface org.eclipse.zest.core.viewers.ISelfStyleProvider which solves my problem without hacking into zest internal structure!
