Hi Vasily,
Thanks for the info. JAXB 2.1 presents Java EE 5 TCK issues for us.  
We're working to learn from Sun how to pass the TCK w/ JAXB/JAXWS 2.1.  
Not something that i'd anticipate for a near-term, 2.0/2.1 release.  
However, don't see why we shouldn't start exploring this on our dev  
trunk (e.g. 2.2-SNAPSHOT).
