If One TCK is so important, let me propose a semi-heretical idea: don't 
open it. Certainly the 400 JVM developers should be able to run the TCK, 
but it's not clear that they need to distribute modified versions. (Of 
course, they could still submit bug fixes and such to the TCK 
maintainers.) I don't think the Linux distros need to distribute the TCK 
either, so their "OSI or die" policy doesn't appear to affect the TCK.
