Thank you Marc. IMO, the spec is already a success. We've garnered a
lot of interest from a few of our larger customers already. People like
the spec.

The only thing I worry about is Servlet 3.0. Did you see they have
something similar to MessageBodyReader/Writers? Now that you're
finished, maybe we can put some pressure on Servlet 3.0. IMO, JAX-RS is
a better Servlet and as one of my community members said "HTTP done
right". Its time to get specs aligned instead of competing with each other.
