Issue Type: Feature Request

At some point in the future there's a good chance that the ORB requirement will be
removed from EE entirely. If that happens we need to be able to react and ensure that the
JTS continues to work because it’s the most complete distributed transaction
implementation that we possess. Now there are two ways to do that:
(i) we ship our own ORB, either JacORB or something else, say.
(ii) we remove the dependency on CORBA entirely.
Whilst (i) is a good short term option, I think we need to look at (ii). An old in-house
TM that JBoss had which Narayana replaced had a JTS implementation which supported CORBA
and JBoss Remoting (I think it was Remoting). Ultimately what we need is a high
performance distributed transactions implementation and JTS is it today but it has a
dependency on CORBA that we need to try to remove and yet keep most of the non-ORB
