Looks good!

I agree and in fact the creation of libraries for the framing layer was 
listed as a specific goal in the proposal.

We might need to consider a couple of variants. Some people will prefer 
the DataInput/DataOutput interfaces, others will prefer ByteBuffers (and 
the qpid client and broker will still prefer the Mina variant of that).

Apart from the encoding utils, most of the rest of the framing layer can 
be generated, so maybe the generator templates could at some point offer 
the option to target the different io APIs.
