It's already an independent spec. That has nothing to do with using the MR
process to update it.

Normally we think "JSR == Spec", but really it's "JSR == EG". A single EG
created both a new version of the EJB spec and this independent Interceptors
spec. Just like the platform EG created the EE platform spec, the EE Web
Profile spec, and the Managed Beans spec, all independent specs.
