AIUI jaxme is an implementation of that specification and includes 
clean room implementation classes in the javax package. that's 
specifically allowed by the specification (you can download the 
specification and create a clean room implementation). of course, 
particular people may be prevented from creating clean room 
implementations (by previous license agreements) but providing you're 
haven't signed anything like that, you can create an implementation in 
the javax package space working from that specification.

i'm not an expert and you've now reached the end of my knowledge :)

dims and the web services pmc arranged the implementation and i think 
they probably know what they're doing.
