I think that JMX is already being used in some places as an 
inter-operability mechanism. The use of tools such as JMS and LDAP have 
been discussed with the ideas of clustering and JNDI already; my 
recollection of the discussions concluded that the use would be very 
heavyweight for what it needs to achieve.

However, the idea of a kernel based around passing messages (whether or 
not implemented over JMS) does have a number of attractions IMHO.

There's a discussion page on the (original) wiki about it:
