I would hope all would somehow agree that commonality over the shared
part of the IDL is worth aiming for. The problem I guess is that the
DDS vendors does not have time to wait.

It is unclear to me if you indicate that you tried the proposed DDS
solutions and found them too be less than you desire, or that you tried
them and realized that it is the way too go for CORBA as well?

If part of your rationale is that CORBA need, or may need, a different
mapping than the new DDS mapping for the shared parts. Could you please
share this rationale.
