I didn't lead it, but there is a preview draft available for
JSR236-237 at http://gee.cs.oswego.edu/dl/concurrencyee-interest/index.html
(This was due mainly by Chris Johnson of IBM.)
The JSR236-237 effort itself hit some messy JCP logistic problems
so this is in limbo. I'm not sure how long, but possibly until
some JCP rules are changed via JSR306. Which itself not likely soon.
