So to point out the obvious, it means nobody can produce an independent
implementation of this JSR and determine its compliance with the
specification.  That seems like quite a problem for a supposedly
individual JSR.

Is there any indication of which JSRs are separable and which can only
be tested in the context of the umbrella JSRs?  I'm guessing not, and
that we'd need to ask the question each time.

It is strange to me that the tests for just one class
(java.util.jar.Pack200) and two interfaces (Pack200.Packer and
Pack200.Unpacker) are so closely coupled with the other tests -- there
is no integration with the java.util other than by package naming

Can we please try ensure that any JSR that is proposed for inclusion in
a Java 7 umbrella comes with its own TCK?
