What would a Jython JSR do?

James asked me:

OK now a question for you :) The Python language is standardized through the PDP and Jython is a port/impl of it. JSR 223 is an API to bind any scripting language to the JVM & web container. So what would a Jython JSR do?

It would generate hype. About dynamic langauges on the JVM in general, and about Jython in particular. That's why I said I like the idea of a Jython JSR, but for the wrong reasons! Let's be honest; anyone who thinks hype isn't of the essence in the software industry is selling something ;-)
