Given the scope outlined here as well as the aspiration to make this a 
cross cutting set of features that work with clients that aren't part of 
ActiveMQ land but just JMS clients in general then I'd lean towards a -1 
of creating a new subproject or building new modules into Artemis that 
provide these features.

My suggestion would be to go the route of an incubator project where you 
could work out the goals as aspirations of this new project and build a 
community around that.  I think there would be more willingness from 
folks that aren't ActiveMQ centric developers to contribute to a project 
that lives on it's own given the current goal seems to be that it's 
something that works with many different JMS client implementations, 
most of which aren't ActiveMQ....

Have a look at the incubator process ( I 
think it lends itself to what's being proposed here more so than just 
spinning up a subproject and starting to write some code.
