with the TCK are totally compatible with the schema provided with the TCK. 
That is the premise we have been using with JPOX whilst developing the TCK. 
Why is it different for other implementations?
Can we have some examples of why it would be necessary ?
Are we talking about JDO implementations that don't support Apache Derby ? In 
that case would it not be better to have any other RDBMS files generated be 
fed back to the TCK project and then have them under central control? We 
can't have one JDO implementation hand crafting its own SQL files and ORM 
files and saying that it is "compatible" when the ORM they have generated may 
be incorrect with respect to the spec and the schema it should equate to. e.g
