2 words about me. working for Sourcesense, committer of Apache POI
implementing the Open XML format support, very close to the CM world,
in particular to JCR; I have been also working on Alfresco for a
couple of years.
I am very excited by this thread, since I am one of those hoping that
CMIS could be, at least, a battering-ram towards better
interoperability among CM vendors.

Yes, this is because there is already a missing brick for CMIS in
order to be successful, that is a Reference Implementation where to
build the Specs.

So, here is one!
I like the proposal to create a sandbox where we can put stuff that
could turn out very good stuff or just junk...
Yes: sandbox + committers r/w on it would be the simplest approach.
