Smart proxies.  Flexible protocols.  Two services offering the same
interface, one of which uses JERI and one of which uses an in-memory
handler.  Remote event listeners that do filtering on the "event
generator" side, and only go to the consumer if the consumer is really
interested in the event.

"The end of protocols" is not just a concept.  To require fixed,
preloaded proxies is to tear the heart and soul out of Jini.
