Of course, "extended JMS" is also a proprietary API (unless you push the 
extensions through Java Community Process), but perhaps we can reduce 
the percent of code that uses proprietary extensions.

In the long run, I think that standardizing our APIs is the best thing 
for users, who will want standard APIs. But I think we should first come 
up with a clean API to be standardized, one that is consistent across 
language bindings.
