I believe the JSR was kicked off due to these projects. ie XDoclet+EJBDoclet 
and then BEAs version combined with .NETs attributes was where it came from. 
However I don't think any of these guys are on the EG but they are tracking 
it I believe and I think are going to work towards it when it comes out. 
Essentially commons-attributes is a facade that will allow metadata to be 
sucked out of multiple sources I think.
