Actually I think 2) and 2b) are not possible. The ASF is part of the JCP 
and thus is contracted to only distribute standard Java code if it 
implements the spec (which 2b doesn't) and passes the TCK (which 2 fails 
on because I don't think the Derby project wants to get into producing 
certified J2ME environments). If you want to check this you can ask 
questions on jcp-open@apache.org.
