To play devil's advocate and argue against my own point, it is somewhat telling that at least two members of the Bean Validation EG maintain separate object transformation-related libraries.  ;)  Still, I have a hard time envisioning what a related specification would look like, regardless of under which EG's umbrella it was done.

Here my long experience with JCP prompts me to say that in this case,
the domain of conversion is close enough to validation as to make it
worthwhile to keep in BV.

Don't forget, we already have so many specs that it's a job even for me
to keep up, let alone someone who doesn't get paid full time to do so.

At Oracle at least, the oversight for creating a new JSR sets a rather
high bar.
