I do not believe otherwise!  It was just at a point where I felt I needed a
scorecard and a program, so I thought (and appear to have been right) that
applying the rigor of a code definition would help to clarify positions.

specification == Servlets
platform      == Tomcat, Weblogic, JRun, et al

specification == Mailets
platform      == James, "WebOvoid Mail", "JWalk", YAJMail

One argument seems to be "don't tie the Mailet API to the James
implementation", thus the only packages permissible are mailets, JavaMail
and core java.  Your argument is that the Avalon Frameworks should be viewed
on equal footing with javax.* packages.

Based upon some of the statements made surrounding JSR 111, it seems clear
that over time there will be significant refactoring to take advantage of
improvements JSR 111 allows to interface design and evolution.
