Don't think of it as starting over.  Think of it as refactoring the core
to make those really challenging things easier.

I would like to take a look at how the different containers organize things
in the core to see the strengths and weaknesses of each.  Leveraging that
information, we can provide for a better and refactored core that we all
know how to work with.

As to the list of challenges you have, I would like a little more info:

* Distributed containers: I think we understand this well enough
* Federated Management: I am not sure what you mean by this.
* Adaptive component security: Phoenix has a start on this I believe, or
                                are you talking about something different?
