Time to restart/finish this discussion.

Personally, I'd have been happy to see this move forward either way -- 1) IP clearance with
implementation work in Commons or 2) Incubator project with graduation to Commons (or other
TLP). We seem to have talked our way into doing nothing.

The Geronimo project is going to need a Bean Validation implementation for EE6 compliance.
So, I'm confident that there is enough interest to create an implementation at Apache. I'd
prefer that it end up in Commons (since this is really an SE technology). However, I can start
discussions in the Geronimo community, if that's what it takes.
