Thanks for your input.
I was also quite indifferent when I saw the 236 presentation in the EC F2F

It shows redundant aspects of things other JSRs just as of now are also
working on. A "Batch" Mode most notably, though Linda said, it could
theoretically be used by those implementing Java Batch (JSR 352) but
wouldn't replicate Batch as such.

I believe, we agreed, Batch should not be in the Web Profile either, so
given all the functionality similar to Batch, EJB or even WebSockets (a
more modern approach to Async, makes what 236 tried to address nearly a
decade ago also less important in the new decade[?]) I would not add it to
