It merely describes the Java interface in terms that are more universal than Java itself -- it is like a DTD for interfaces. So far nobody has yet proposed anything that would make an IDL description impossible. All I ask is that: a) nobody do so later (e.g. require runtime lookup of Java class objects or do something simiarly brain-dead) and b) implementations in other languages be considered "successes" in terms of the success/failure of this project. I don't think that either of these constraints endanger the success of the Java-specific part of the project or make the Java-specific part more difficult.
