I subscribe to that

I agree that the _applications_ behind the portlets maybe receiving and sending OOB events, but I do not think portlets should do that. Portlets have a very clear life cycle, and in my view when they are not explicitly called by the container (and consumer) they should be dormant (in a sense they only exist during the request cycle. Between requests it's just their state that persists, just like servlets, ASP pages, etc.).

This is equivalent to saying that it is up to each implementation to decide how out-of-band items get reflected into the WSRP interactions. My gut instinct says this is where we will likely end up, but I think we would do a disservice to the community-at-large if we don't at least consider the implications related to out-of-band events and possibly provide some guidance.

I'm not sure we should we care about out-of-band events, unless we
consider pushing them through WSRP calls. In other words, making them
