[javaee-spec users] [jsr342-experts] Clarification Requested: Default DB required for App Client?

Since the spec does not exclude the app client container from the default datasource requirement, it seems like this is required. The TCK also includes a few tests with this expectation. However, I am wondering if this was intentional. It seems a little strange to require that all EE clients have a local database running.
