Without getting involved in the rest of the discussions associated  
with this thread, I do want to clarify one point...

About seven months ago, BEA decided to pursue an alternative  
direction with the other active independents working on SCA at the  
time when our goals diverged from others in the community. Speaking  
for BEA, we made it clear on multiple occasions that while we wished  
Tuscany success, given the divergent interests, we were satisfied  
with our decision to participate elsewhere. It is unlikely we will  
revisit this decision in the future.
