@Startup could also make sense in Concurrency in Java EE, like @Pooling
(there's thread pools behind).  BTW I was talking to the Oracle guys and it
looks like the Concurrency spec will be updated in EE 8... I don't know how
far the update will go.

As for the JMS stuff, we talked with Nigel and he likes the idea of MDB
replacement going to where it belongs : the JMS spec
