Agree here 100%

I agree here as well. IMO, River needs to be simplified. From where I  
sit I see River providing infrastructure technology that allows us to  
build dynamic distributed systems using Java technology. River  
provides the infrastructure technology that technologies higher in the  
stack to build upon.

I think it would be great to have a River core (discovery/join,  
lookup, leasing, transactions & distributed events), with sub-projects  
starting with JavaSpaces. Other services TBD

+1 here as well.
