Doesn't Java count as Java a "huge plug-in"? :-)

I know Netscape is moving it to the plug-in side, at least.
And Java is certainly huge in size and complexity.

I don't see how mapping Self like language to Java byte codes
is possible, but even if it where, wouldn't it be better to
write a small, fast VM and stick it inside an Active-X control
for Netscape and a COM object for IE?
