hi all,

Now we have a first specification draft I've been thinking about the
remaining design activities that need to be closed before we can call the
JSR complete.  Here's my list.  I'll send out a specific email for each one
to keep the threads separate.

1 -  Round tripping entity identity.   Its desirable to be able to get a
handle to an entity within a dump and then come back later and ask for the
entity by handle.

3 - Optionality - how do we  define a mechanism that allows a dump to
