And this has a lot to offer the idea of Jakarta as a federation. The
biggest negatives are:

1) It's definitely an aim to have a common Java federation at Apache;
so it'll be odd to try and bring non-Java spec implementations in.

2) These ideas are in some part quite new for the Jakarta community(s)
and some part completely new. So I've a bit of explaining to do over
there :)
