My motivation of being part of 291, is for it to be the starting point of a 
thread of JSRs over time, which needs OSGi as its base platform, delivering 
an extendable and dynamic platform, possibly challenging and complementing 
the static nature of JEE applications.
There is still a political question within th JCP EC, whether this will fly 
since a lot of JEE investments could be perceived being threatened. Time will 
tell.
