Here’s what I found:

From the Sun/Oracle Java EE side, we historically only add/remove tests to/from the TCK when an MR or JSR has been released for technology. IOW, we only add new tests when we do a new MR or full JSR. At that point, whoever wants to be compatible with new MR or JSR, must pass the new TCK tests.

As such, you can be compatible with JAX-RS 2.0 but you may fail to be compatible with JAX-RS 2.1 if new tests are added to the TCK for JAX-RS 2.1 are covering some new areas that were not covered in the older TCK versions.
