Well I think in this mailing list there are different experts.
Independently from the open question below we I guess we can provide
some support, obviously we need discuss a bit the JSR process I don't
know in detail, to understand the level of commitment required.

Yes, at least for me (my organization) October is really early to work
on that.

The IPR question is the most sensible issue. We adopted ASL2.0 because
it is the simpler permissive licences protecting the software adopters
(especially industry) from patent ambushes. Which is the license
suggested for this JSR?
After the withdrawal of Apache from the JCP the IPR and governance seems
not so clear.

See my answer above

We can try to see if there are people/organization interested in this
specification, ... for example I might introduce the argument at the
coming workshop .. well objectives and interests should be well defined.
