The purpose of this initial specification is solely for #1. CORBA has
already been voted out of the picture at this point for what we are
dealing with at the moment.

Once we have the initial spec complete, however, expanding to cover a
second set of mechanisms of DE/WM integrations, via CORBA/IPC/etc. is a
viable goal.

Let's deal with what we have people waiting on us for first.
