The project proposal included a clear statement that the API spec would
be available to others wanting to create an alternative implementation.
 There were no objections to this in principal.

If it's not possible under Apache rules - then can I recommend we
differentiate (somehow, maybe by package) the API from the
implementation such that I can restart a parallel effort in the OAuth WG
to gain acceptance for a Java API spec, for later backport?

1. All of the Java implementations so far have been non-standard and
without any effort at either a common API or "Spec only" component.

2. They don't appear to have expertise/interest in doing this
themselves, however, much of the initial interest was from members of
the OAuth WG list in response to my suggestion (to that mailing list)
that a standard Java API was developed.

3. It has to start somewhere.
