I'd really like to see the grouping of just configuration modules go  
away.  I firmly believe that configuration modules should live right  
next to the code modules for which they are configuration for.

I'd like to see the main assembly configuration split off from the  
server/core/whatever stuff.  Actually, I'd like to see the core/ 
framework as a sub-project, then have the server sub-project server  
only to configure the plugins to be pulled in and the assembly  
configurations for the javaee server distributions.
