If logging were removed?

Not sure. Should we also consider a J-JEE-C? With this being J-JSE-C?
[pool], [dbcp] and [JCS] all seem related.

This is a hard one. Specialised yes, but definitely a JLC fit and
otherwise we'll just have a Jakarta Regexp Components group.

It's not a fit anyway - [math] goes way, way beyond the JDK.


[bcel]? Again a specialized knowledge one.

[dbutils]? Do we consider jdbc to be JEE?
[email]? JEE?

It might make things simpler to draw up an entire future re-org of
Jakarta. See who gets dropped through the cracks and decide if we have
to kill, accept or leave them to stand alone. There are some obvious
ones for JWC, and some that just don't seem to fit and would have to
stand alone.
