This proposal has been available for review and comment since 2006-10-31.
I know the shutdown for Axis2 1.1 release took a lot of attention away from
other items such as this.   However, the prototype for this proposal has
been tested and
used internally so the prototype has reached a level of stability.  I think
the risk of
introducing problems to the mainstream message processing is very minimal.

This proposal does not change Axis2 architecture but instead deals with the
existing structure of the Axis2 message context object graph and message

I would really like to get this proposal at a point where it could be
in the Axis2 1.2 release.  I am currently working on a solution for the
you made regarding the ServiceContext and I will provide an updated

What are the concerns/issues that are blocking the acceptance of
this proposal?
