I'd like to keep up with legal on the right thing  ...  but I'd also 
like to see us release 2.1.1 sometime and it seems like there is always 
something new to include.  Has legal said that we can no longer deliver 
our retyped versions?

Here is a proposal (assuming legal isn't said that we cannot release G 
leveraging our already released retyped xsds/dtds):
- We work to get the cddl sun xsds/dtds included in new versions of our 
specs, release them, and leverage them in trunk.
- If the work on openejb, activemq, and yoko are finished for 2.1.1 
before we get the sun xsds/dtds included in our releases and working in 
in trunk then we would release 2.1.1 as is.
- However, if we get the updated specs released with the cddl xsds/dtds 
and trunk working successfully with these prior to our other 2.1.1 
issues being resolve, then we would look to integrate the spec changes 
into 2.1.1.

Does that sound like it would work?
