Yes, my sentiments exactly. I wouldn't want a focus on a *breadth* of 
systems to end up meaning that (a) nothing is done well or (b) this 
slips out of Java 7.

As always OSGi is the most important to us and, I suspect, to the 
majority also.
Its also the only one with an associated approved JCP standard, so it 
would be interesting to know what platform specific issues have been
