My understanding was that we, as JSPA signatories, can't even do that.
 We can only release code that passes the complete TCK if the subject
matter is even tangentially related to an approved JSR.  For example,
I thought we are forbidden to release anything related to Servlets
(javax.foo or even entirely in an org.apache namespace) unless it
passes the Servlet TCK in its entirety.

Is that a correct interpretation as to how things stand now with Sun? 
Or, am I misunderstanding it?

Thanks.  -- justin
