The ORBs that are shipped with Sun's JVM is severely hamstrung.  I  
would not use that precedent to move the ORB to Harmony.

I think that Yoko would be better suited in Geronimo where we are  
more server oriented.  I think that given the plugable nature of the  
ORB, the CXF bindings could probably move to CXF.
