There are a number of situations:
- adding flags to allow previous behaviors for unclear portions of the 
specification (which used pass the relevant TCK); I think this is acceptable
- adding methods or altering the signature of the javax. APIs is clearly 
illegal
- adding language constructs in JSP, elements in JCP DTDs or xsds is 
quite similar to that one, and I don't know if it's legal
