I am all for a usable API. Usable in the sense that target applications
would *only* need to rely on this JSR API to be developed. Then these
applications should be easily deployable into containers such as JAX-WS,
Servlet or Restlet.

In the case of Restlet, I also want to let developers manually attach the
annotated POJOs within existing Restlet applications but this won't be
mandatory. I except to have some way to say take my annotated POJOs and
generate a deployable application (WAR) out of them.

Sorry I missed your reply before sending the other email about the recent
JSR title change. is good too, javax.rws (RESTful Web Services)
could be another option more inline with javax.jws.
