"and it will (presumably) become a standard part of the JDK."

Is someone from Sun participating in the JDOM beta releases now? That would
be a good first step to eventually get JDOM into Java.

Also, is anyone speaking about JDOM at JavaOne? I turned in a proposal to
show how I used JDOM in an open-source load testing application. The
proposal made it past the first cut but then was turned down.
