I am not trying to add Java interfaces to the navigator. At some point
the JRE/JVM is in touch with the underlying OS (distribution). These
contact point are the interfaces we need to capture. Once these
interfaces are part of the LSB then (for all available JREs) then
JRE/JVM suppliers can certify as can ISVs shipping their favorite JRE.

Yes, but if we were to add Java class library info to the navigator and
try to get that information into the LSB it would appear to me more like
trying to create an lsbjre, an option I think has some strong opposition
based on previous posts to this thread.
