Currently it is no different than servlet/xml apis that apache implements as I 
don't think any of them are legal yet. I believe Apache was going to be 
granted permission to implement a bunch of APIs like servlet, and xml ones. 
Not sure it has been actioned yet. However JMX is not part of blessed apis so 
it wont be "legal" even then. However TC relies on it so I expect it will be 
in future. I would put it in but up to you ;)
