Thinking about it, it seems weird that the client should have to know about the name of the server-side class implementing the interface (the exception is of course multiple implementations of the same interface).

It can always be overriden using the +name+ attribute of the appropriate annotation (@Stateless, @Stateful, @Singleton) or via the +ejb-name+ element of ejb-jar.xml.
I've done some more research, and I guess what it boils down to is that the client needs to know that name (whether default or custom); the interface alone plus the connection to the server is not enough to lookup and connect to the remote implementation. 

Are there other approaches I can use to streamline this? Is this something domain deployment would help with?
