You are touching an important subject: lifecycle management. I suggest
create, start, stop, destroy methods in some classes/APIs (semantics of
JBoss Service MBeans). I think it's vital that we support that. Would
you mind opening a JIRA ticket for this?

JMX is a JDK 1.5 API (or J2EE 1.4). This would change the 1.3 dependency
requirement. I think it's best to implement the JMX stuff at the Synapse
level at the moment. You know best what you need. Maybe later we can
incorporate that into a separate module, if it's of interest to other users.
