JBI is the JSR approved standard API to integration components and an  
ESB container is the standard container model for a BPE; so it makes  
sense to work on a BPE in conjunction with a JBI container and  
component framework along with the JBI community at Apache  
(ServiceMix) to ensure they all work nicely together. I'm sure other  
projects can reuse the resulting code; just like I'm sure other  
projects can use the JBI container etc. (e.g. the JBI container could  
be embedded inside Synapse or Tuscany or even Axis).

Given the completed state of the BPE code and the symbiotic nature of  
the JBI project and BPE I don't see a big need to put this BPE within  
an incubating umbrella project of other in-development workflow engines.
