Hey Dan-

My guess is that we haven't made enough substantive progress in this
(River) project yet to attract Jini users to these mailing lists.  We  
have some (who seem to be generally lurking), but it will not be  
(IMHO) until
we get out a release or two before 'users' will start to be very  
vocal on this

It might be better to ask this at jini/javaspaces-users right now.

My 2c.
