I certainly agree, for ISVs there are only two categories, use it or
don't use it...

   I guess one thing that Brian and other ARC members tasks can do is to
classify which libraries are Stable/Evolving/Unstable/Private (where Sun
has lots of experience on) and allow developers and ISVs to *clearly* see
the classification before committing to development. This at least allows
the ISVs to make a more informed choice if they have to.
