LiquidFusion - Any Takers?

Just after I found out about the Sun's purchase of MySQL, the news about Oracle's acquisition of BEA filtered through.

Can this be anything other than consolidation within an aging market sector. An indication that the "one size fits all" monolithic messaging middleware /  application server era is in its twilight years?

Perhaps OSGi and SCA will, in due course, be seen as key technology enablers allowing the shift away from costly monolith middleware?
