I think we are talking different things here as you are talking about 
getting your final version of your product ready to be released based on 
a JSR which is getting ready to go final , which is fine, which is 
different from what i was trying to say.

http://jcp.org/en/resources/guide#fab  gives you an overview of how a 
JSR goes final.
