With Mark's long explanation of the bazillion things called "Jini", I'd
say that its unlikely to be acceptable. But then ... we're a weird bunch
and YMMV. (And I'm *really* sorry for that but that's the way we work
yet :(.)

My personal opinion: probably not needed.

If the name's changed here of course. If not hmm probably not; we're
currently in the habit of giving grief of that nature to Geronimo stuff.

I think there was generally enthusiastic interest in Jini (from me too
personally) here, so other than for sorting out the legal issues we
should be ok. But then I'm one of many with an opinion and one of (a
smaller) many with a vote. 

Best path is be patient, keep pushing (gently), try to make adjustments
as consensus is apparently falling into place, and finally when you feel
the need to pull your hair out, pull only one each time .. that way you
won't look like me by the time this proposal gets accepted. ;-).
