I've recently proposed to Javasoft, via their public RMI-USERS mailing 
list, that they adopt XML as the serialization format for Beans and 
JARs.  I see this is a critical move in unifying the "web" and 
"object" implementations of the distributed future (their respective 
*visions* are already practically identical).

Interest, what little there has been so far, has been very positive.  But 
unfortunately, Javasoft themselves have not yet responded.

I'm trying to drum up public interest so that we might be able to push a 
little harder on this, perhaps even constructing a prototype two-way 
Bean/XML serializer to demonstrate our case (somewhat similar to 
Netscape's JavaScript Beans).
