Two problems with this idea, one political, one practical:

- The title of JSR-102 is "JDOM 1.0", and its spec lead is Jason.
- JDOM has a 9 month headstart on DOM4J (comparing the dates of the initial
public releases). A JSR based on DOM4J would have to be released substantially
later than one based on JDOM.
