Hello Steve,
	Thanks for the update, that's helpful. I prefer option 3. I believe it 
is better to develop good technology then to standardize it, rather than 
the other way around.

If we are unenmcumbered by the JSR, then so much the better. Apache Kato 
was always going to have to be more than just the core specification for 
the APIs, the need for the applications to use the APIs is not affected 
by the presence or otherwise of the JSR. Arguably, the JSR might be 
better if more effort is spent on its applications.
