So now we would only have the "named PMF" specified via a PMF property to 
support and implementations wouldn't be required to support reading of JPA 
"persistence.xml" ? 
I thought the general idea was to have more read-across between JPA and JDO - 
ok having a "named PMF" does have its equivalent in JPA clearly, but users 
can't then just take an existing "persistence.xml" file and a 
<persistence-unit> contained within it and use it under JDO. Or maybe I 
misunderstand your proposal
