That's a convenient overview! :) On that page it can be seen that the GA
pattern is mostly:

groupId = javax.[keyword]
artifactId = javax.[keyword]-api

JPA, CDI, Bean Validation and Batch use a different pattern. Batch is quite
close, but for some reason has "-annotation" instead of "-api" in the
artifactID. Bean Validation is also close, but doesn't have its artifactId
starting with "javax" (why?)

JPA and CDI have rather different names.

A few not listed also have rather different names, e.g. JASPIC:

artifactId: jaspic.provider.framework

Kind regards,
