Sounds like there is a chicken and egg problem here; Executive Committee will 
require a RI to be available before the Specification is ratified?
Then where does the ASF community fit in to the picture?
Is the ASF community part of the specification process, or is that a JCP 
invitation only?

JDO going OSS == great... but please keep the community informed and listen in 
on feedback. Otherwise JDO has no future at ASF, which I find sadening.

One of the reason is that this community is not taking charge of its own 
destiny. You kick the people with the Karma to make the change, and it will 
happen. Exactly who these are, is a bit hard to tell. More than 50 people 
belong to the incubator group, but things are now in subversion, and I am not 
sure how the karma is computed in such case.
But Craig McClanahan seems to have the power...
