That's great. I would encourage in the future bringing designs and ideas
to the derby-dev list before undergoing a serious coding effort. If the
design is based upon a wrong assumption then it can mean a lot of wasted
effort for everyone. Everyone should treat the derby-dev list and the
folks on it as a great resource and your team members.

I do have concerns with "We will submit a detailed description", this
implies to me that there is a team of folks working on this design
without talking to the list. I guess you have every right to do this,
but it's not realy open source development, and in my eyes does not
build merit in the Apache way.
