Reality would seem to contradict this statement.  Sun has been pushing 
MIDP/CLDC/CDC onto these devices (and very successfully I might add).  Jini 
has never had the support of the executive suite at Sun.

My thoughts on this are that JINI capability could be added to an embedded 
container (based on A5 hopefully) as a component, rather than building it into 
the framework/container itself.  This allows for a wider range of contstrained 
devices that can be supported (on the low end), yet still provides avanced 
capabilities (dynamic service discovery, JINI, JXTA, etc...) for those devices 
that can handle it.  In many cases, it would make more sense to adopt just the 
JINI/JXTA concepts rather than the whole kit and caboodle those technologies 
come with.
