Bean Validation roadmap

We have seriously reduced our stock of todos with the release of Bean Validation 1.1 but we still have a few things we would like to put in the specification eventually. Most of them require some experimentation in Hibernate Validator or the other Bean Validation implementations out there. After feedback they will be ready to be folded back in the specification.

We encourage you to follow the Hibernate Validator roadmap. We have also a left over from Bean Validation 1.1 described below.
