Thanks for summarizing well what I have been advocating.

I think that we should consider the Jini standard separately - we have a
community and a codebase, and should proceed with that now.  Because it
still is a standard we can work on that in parallel if all parties are
willing.

I believe therefore that we have now returned to the original
question... what should the name of the new podling be called? :)
