Should we lose <properties> and <listeners> elements?

Without inheritance, we could lose the <properties> and <listeners> elements grouping <property> and <listener> children... which makes the JSL unnecessarily verbose.
I think we can still tweak the TCK pretty easily here with a find-replace, but I think we should give Mahesh a chance to weigh in on the impact to Glassfish tests.
I disagree with this. Just because we are not supporting inheritance in this version of the spec does not mean that we will whenever the next version is addressed. The grouping element provides an element of readabilitiy as well as minimizes the impact of the changes required to support inheritance.
I disagree, too, for same reasons as Michael.
