LOL, it is a classic :-)

To be honest I'm not sure a formal TCK compliance is what drives users
to adopt a given framework, there are many, many examples around of the
frameworks thriving without having a compliance tag of any sort. I won't
be missing the users who would go away from CXF because it has no such a
tag at the moment, they'd not stay for long anyway.

FYI: it is a formal fact that a preliminary TCK is freely available to
Apache and the current Oracle restrictions do not apply to the
preliminary TCK due to them becoming effective after we tested against
it. So we thought carefully and decided that we could say it. If Oracle
tells Apache (not CXF) that the preliminary TCK is also falls under that
restriction then we'd update the statement. But don't hold your breath
:-), we hope that there will more positivity going forward in this area...

Thanks, Sergey
