I am just searching for the correct licenses for jars that we wish to 
redistribute that ASF projects already redistribute.
*please note, once and for all, my concerns have nothing to do with 
implementions, just with the jars of the APIs* (so don't refer me to the 
loong threads of BEA wishing to APL-ize the StAX-RI).

I believe that it is wrong, unless we know differently, to bundle a jar 
of code copyright-owned-by W3C or BEA or Sun and claim it is APL, even 
if the source has been in an ASF repository for a while. And this is 
what I seem to observe.

Hope i clarified!
