Is anyone giving any thought to supporting SECIOP under Yoko?

It is relevant to this discussion, I think, since you might need 
replaceability at a different layer than at the socket layer.

Agreed.  There's no reason to postpone our work to involve the JCP for 
something that, on a good day, only 3 people on the planet care about.

Maybe we can get IONA and IBM to agree here :)  I can attempt to push it 
through IBM (and maybe Andy can try BEA).

My personal opinion is that this should go through the JCP. The reason the 
original proposal failed was because it was defined in IDL in order to be 
supportable on any ORB (i.e. non-Java) and there were issues with the way 
this worked. I think this is really a Java specific problem and therefore 
should be solved in a java-specific way. Unfortunately I think protocol 
dictates that this go through the OMG ....

Another alternative is to sneak it in via the Java-IDL spec which already 
has Java-specific APIs. I suspect this would also be a breach of protocol
