Yes thats right.  Going forward we've gotta be quite careful of what is 
said publicly about the certification process due to NDAs and the like. 
  A lot of the details of this will have to stay private on the 
certification team mail list. (Which reminds me, we need to setup a 
certification team & a private, certification-only team mail list soon)

But yes, we can certainly certify different combinations of different 
things (platforms, JVMs, databases, servlet engines etc). Combinations 
of things which we don't certify are not certified.
