@Antoine, so which content do you see in CDI Lite ? Are you sure about
events ?

I'm in favor of a "fatter" 330 that would have :

   - @Inject : already there
   - @Qualifier : already there
*Producers and disposers *
*Programatic lookup *
   - *Java SE Bootstrap*

When you say "*The goal here is not to propose a new EE profile but a
subspec*", 330 could already be seen as a subspec. If you put events
apparts, what would be missing in this list in your point of view ? And
what obstacles do you see in archieving this ?

To boostrap CDI we have a CDIProvider, why not having an InjectionProvider
just to bootstrap 330 (then, CDIProvider could extend InjectionProvider, so
it bootstraps the all thing) ?
