IMO, we should feel free to break Java EE 5 compliance, post G 2.2.  
So, I think 3.0-SNAPSHOT will be appropriate. I expect that we'll go  
through some number of Milestone releases, on our way to EE 6  
compliance. It's possible that we could release a 3.0 that is web  
profile compliant, but not fully EE 6 compliant. IMO, that's something  
we'll evaluate down-the-line (e.g. once we have an actual initial EE 6  
spec to evaluate).
