The last sentence sounds like a technical statement that can be wrong.
If there are no changes between the last draft and the final spec,
then the code _is_ compatible with the specification once that is
finalized. It is just impossible to tell in advance.
Also the "any" covers more than just JSR 301. JSR 301 refers to
JSR 168 and JSR 286. So the code could be compatible with other JSRs.

"The code is not known to be compatible with..."?
