Thanks for the details.
We are anticipating an EDR fairly soon; 9 months from the approval date
would be in July and I see no problem meeting this JCP metric that
encourages expert groups to keep development moving.

Just to follow up on the EDR deadline discussion, the EC F2F Meeting this January has made it clear, that should a JSR miss the 9 month EDR deadline (see http://jcp.org/en/procedures/jcp2_8#1.3) there will always be a Renewal Ballot. See http://jcp.org/aboutJava/communityprocess/ec-public/materials/2013-01-1516/January-2013-public-minutes.html under "2012 year-end report"
The EC clarified, that a Spec Lead may in such case declare exceptional circumstances, which (similar to 354, where the Spec Lead changed due to Victor Grazi leaving Credit Suisse) the EC will take into consideration, but it won't prevent the actual ballot. Bending this rule and conclusion for Oracle-lead JSRs would certainly send the wrong message to the community, so we should consider July, based on the JSR approval it would be the 16th, but there could be some flexibility between beginning and end of that month, the last month for a first EDR.
