JEFF - ISO standard Java?

While Sun couldn't seem to get Java standardised it looks like others have had more success in the the real-time and embedded area.

JEFF is interesting because it's:
* Designed to run directly from memory rather than translated,
* Designed to support a Java like VM,
* Royalty free,
* 50% smaller.

Curse our high bandwidth, fast, cheap mobile devices. It's funny that the consortium member "are comprised of companies and individuals dedicated to accelerating the use of Java":

They didn't go through the JSR process:

I wonder why:

Would it be because of the consortium members. Microsoft still doing work using that language?
