I apologize for my unclear comment.

I believe, the upgrade model we follow implies that the upgrade is 
possible *Only* from the previous major.minor release. So, the upgrade 
test for 10.3 will only test any possible upgrades from 10.2.

However, in the current framework used for upgrade testing, there exists 
cases which were originally written for 10.0-10.1 upgrade and 10.1-10.2 
upgrade. I believe they are not needed for 10.2-10.3 upgrade testing and 
since the test is canon based, we havent seen any failures.

I think this clean up work (if agreed by community, ofcourse) should be 
handled thru a different JIRA and in the scope of derby-606 fix, I shall 
just update the existing framework with additional case as related to 
the fix.

Please let me know If I am missing anything here.
