Subject Re: JAXB API target

An alternative would be XML Commons Externals where we already have the
whole JAXP and W3C DOM family of APIs. Maybe we should make an inventory
of all those APIs on a Wiki page and write down where they are currently
located. That should give us a better overall picture. Charging into
uncontrolled action might not be the best thing to do. Maintaining APIs
also requires some amount of coordination among projects which also
means that everybody should know what our idea is. Not everybody is on
this list.

That said: +1 for a TLP and for consolidating all API efforts in one

Will be back after a good night's sleep...
