DR201 says that "there will be straightforward mappings of the data types 
used to a wide variety of widely deployed programming languages and object 
systems". Who is going to create these straightforward mappings? If it is
us, 
how we will decide what languages or object systems are worthy of our
efforts?
What if some external organization, e.g., Sun in the case of Java, Microsoft
in 
the case of COM, or the OMG in the case of CORBA, wishes to be the final
arbitrator of those mapping?
