Sun continue work with JDO 2.0

Sun have submitted a JSR (243) for the next version of the JDO specification, 2.0.

As JDO is seen as a viable alternative to Entity Beans, it makes you wonder were Sun is headed with this, especially as they are also working on the EJB3.0 spec.

It would make sense to leave Entity bean support in future J2EE specs for backward compatibility, but surely they must see that the majority of everyone else is going in the direction of Object persistence (with Hibernate and JDO), while Sun are still beating Entity Beans to death? And the majority of those who have implemented systems with Entity Beans are moaning about how complicated the development is, poor performance, bad fit with the Business Domain Model etc?
