I agree a common management interface is desirable. Unfortunately the 
containers we are integrating appear to have little in common. From what 
I hear Jeff saying, apparently simple concepts like "host" differ.

What this means is that we will need substantial extensions to the 
"common" interface to deal with these container specific concepts; the 
lowest common denominator is proving to be too low.

This does mean more work for us: alternative deployment infrastructure, 
alternative management APIs, multiple management portlets, and so on. 
However, it provides a simple and more intuitive interface for the user 
so should be done.
