I should state more clearly what I mean by this.  CMP/BMP EntityBeans 
or Stateful SessionBeans will not have a Web Service Stack, neither 
will Stateless SessionBeans that only have Local or Remote interfaces.

In fact, in the case where people are just chatting from Servlets to 
EJB's through Local interfaces, we don't need any protocol stacks at 
all, e.g. no CORBA, no EJBd, no HTTP/SOAP.  This is partly why it 
weirds me out to add protocol specific things into the 
GenericEJBContainer class.
