I don't think the JCP rules apply since we are not creating an
implementation of JSR221.

I'm sure other rules apply that say one cannot ship a JDBC 4.0 driver
until Mustang goes GA, but that's not the JCP rules that Andrew provided
references to. It would be good to get Lance to expand on what he meant
when he said:

"You cannot have a GA version of a JDBC 4 driver until JSR 221 goes final."

Where does this restriction come from?
