To go ahead, setup the process, and do it? Or take a JDEV poll?

Personally if an implementor is not interested in supporting some JEP
then that's their choice. They'll just miss out on any perceived
benefits. Certification will also be a good thing. iChat is a prime
example of where certifications will make the big guys play fair.
Maybe they won't, but it'll give us some fodder if they don't.

I jotted down some ideas on how the certification process would work.
Defining that and what exactly it means to be certified for a specific
JEP is all that I see the JSF doing. I'll throw that up tomorrow (no
