The general practice on JSRs is to do a "clean room" implementation of
the javax.* classes, taking special care to not introduce any
additional public or protected variables or methods, or alter any of
the method signatures (doing any of this would cause a failure of the
signature tests in the TCK later on).  That's what Tomcat did for the
servlet and JSP api calsses (in the CVS modules jakarta-servletapi-4
and jakarta-servletapi-5), and what Geronimo did in one of their
modules as well.
