Basically, it allows the stream to really know "at the very last possible 
moment" that it can modify things like headers and such.  That's what http 
does with it.   

The one in CORBA is interesting and I didn't even know it did this.   
Basically, there are a couple interceptors and such that assume an 
OutputStream exists.   For CORBA, the OutputStream would never be written to.   
It's mostly just there to satisfy those couple of interceptors as well as get 
the "close" event that would trigger the request/response.   Ideally, this 
would get completely eliminated.   The interceptors that require and 
OutputStream would be updated to be smarter and the "close" trigger could also 
trigger off the XMLOutputStream.close() which the CORBA version of the 
XMLOutputStream could implement properly.
