You are indeed in specification oddity land.  This has come up here  
four times now in as little as three weeks.  I brought this up on the  
EJB 3.1 EG and it's still in discussion.

The long and short of it is the spec is strongly against using a  
business interface as both local and remote due to the very different  
semantics -- pass by value vs. pass by reference -- the thinking is  
that it would confuse users and do more harm than good; I think it'd  
be useful personally.  We had assumed that the same logic would apply  
to JAX-WS interfaces and remote interfaces as they also have very  
different pass by value semantics -- jaxb marshaling vs. java  
serialization -- and there's no guarantee jaxb objects are  
serializable and vice versa.

I'd really like to see a statement about this in the spec as it  
appears to be non-portable currently.  Either way, this is something  
we can support, it's just not there now.
