A reference implementation is an example implementation and proof of  
concept. Different implementations are encouraged and allow support  
for a wide range of databases and performance needs.

The interface jars are actually part of the specification.  
Functionally, the interface jars are (or should be) identical, so  
there is no practical difference. Furthermore, different  
implementations are technically prohibited by the Sun license.

Anyway, I'm not married to the idea of using the, shall we say,  
"sanctioned" jars. Your concerns, coupled with David's mention that  
Geronimo isn't going to change their dependencies, are sufficient for  
me to drop the issue.
