Can you give a few quick examples of these extension points?
While we hear, a few JCP Members work closer with Cloud Initiatives like OpenStack in some aspects of PaaS seems a good idea. If the JCP as such or only members, e.g. Oracle as such would be welcome, I can't say. So far there are mostly vendors, but there are clearly connection points for JSRs, e.g. Identity API, where OpenStack has a separate focus.
Some events seem, like industry organizations like SAGE-AU ( http://conference.sage-au.org.au/) also collaborate. These are more similar to e.g. the JCP or other groups and foundations, so it seems possible.
Regular Release Cycles also seem along the ideas of Java or Eclipse.
I actually agree with Jim. We need at least 2-3 years to see how the field plays out and understand real requirements. Meanwhile I would focus on standardising extension points rather than standardising developer APIs.--

I agree with dropping PaaS / multitenancy requirements from EE 7 and focusing EE 7 on simplification and Web 2.0. However, I remain skeptical of the order chosen to address requirements in the future.
Cloud will still not be mature by the time we need to address requirements for a 2015 delivery (i.e. next year).
