I haven't worked with WAS myself, but thought that might be the case.
That's why I qualify my own rankings of the stacks in the latest article
with " Also, the rankings apply only to the base open source projects;
commercial stacks based on the open source versions may use their own
security code and other extensions. You'll need to look at the
differences between the commercial code and the open source base to see
which parts of the rankings may apply."

Andreas, why don't you add a comment to the article pointing out that
the rankings don't apply to WAS for this reason?
