Absolutely.  Although, I think being able to plugin in a new EJB 
container is important, I think having a default container 
implementation that is extensible is critical to our success.  As more 
and more services are piled on by the J2EE spec, we need to easily be 
able to add them without a total rewrite of a highly coupled system.  
It will also allow revolutionary new services to be built and tried out 
without requiring big changes to the base server.

Basically good all around...
