Updates on Interoperability

I meant so that JSR-277 would get into JDK 7 regardless of the  
decisions we make around interoperability. What I would like from  
Stanley is a list of things that the expert group needs to do and  
dates by when they need to be done to ensure that whatever choices are  
made actually make it into JSR-277.  There has been some question in  
the community as to whether or not JSR-277 would even make it into JDK  
7 based on the public schedule of the project.

Sorry about the confusion,
