I've posted a rough draft of a Pomegranate spec at http://blog.caucho.com/?p=225

Pomegranate containers provide a classloader-based module system for maven-based libraries stored as jar files in a repository. Servlet containers can use pomegranate as an extension to the WEB-INF/lib with the following benefits:

Shared .jar files in a common repository, simplifying management and reducing .war sizes
Library dependency resolution, including the ability to handle sub-module incompatibilities
Familiar Maven pom.xml files, to take advantage of current development practices.
Optional integration with Servlet web-app containers
Optional integration with Java CanDI (JSR-299) managers
