I assume you mean rt-transport-local, not binding-local...

The two of those really have different use cases right now and it would be a 
significant amount of work to get the uses cases for one to be met by the 
other.    I'm OK with doing that, but I'm warning that it will be a lot of 

There isn't really a way to get rid of  rt-transport-local.   It has a 
specific use case of allowing FULL CXF feature sets, but without opening ports 
or anything.   We use it in our tests all over the place.   Basically, it 
allows things like policy and security and gzip and everything to work exactly 
like if it was an HTTP connect, just in-vm.  (that said, I think the 
performance of local is actually less than http)     

The issue is between binding-object and binding-coloc.    Most likely, 
binding-coloc could be re-written in terms of binding-object or vice versa, 
but I've never really dug into them.

No concerns for 2.6.   Go for it.
