Then why, for crying out loud, are we in the Java Community permitting Sun
to lead any JSRs?  We hardly need them for this JSR -- as if Sun are even
remotely subject matter experts -- much less many others.  Let's boot Sun
out of the specification process, and return to OPEN Specifications.  Surely
Day Software and others are qualified -- more qualified than Sun in fact --
to lead a JAX-RS effort.
