I already thought about starting a project doing similar stuff: 
reading/parsing product-specific DDs,
generation of some meta-info format in between and using this 
meta-format for generation of
server specific DDs again - a from X to Y conversion tool one could say.

But currently I'm rather short of time and did not yet start, in 
addition I know JOnAS for about
3 years know but I have rather no experience with other servers. Perhaps 
we'll find some guys
who'd start up this project....
