I'm not here to comment on the main discussion, but it appears to me
that part of the problem here is the difficulty to work with or
maintain schemas and update the associated java code. With better
graphical tooling support for managing schemas and update the linked
java code, maybe this problem might go away? Would start-from-java
still be attractive then?
