The JSTL Specification appears to have the same legal text as the one  
I previously quoted from the Java EE 5 spec (which impacts  
Geronimo).  Since this is test case for a specific component Roy  
get's his wish and we have one small test case to look at.

IANAL and really don't care to be.  That said, we find ourselves  
immersed in legal discussions so I'm hoping that someone qualified to  
speak on IP law (and not our desires) can chime in here so we can get  
a dogmatic read on the license, the past and direction for the future.

It seems to me we are kind of stuck with TCKs but I agree with you  
Henri that life would be far easier without them.
