It's a set of taglibs. But as the name implies, it's the standard taglibs. So 
I think it would make sense to be part of J2EE or JSP.

Not necessarily. The way I see it, J2EE  would only specify which version of 
JSTL (like JSTL 1.1 on J2EE 1.4) should be bundled with a J2EE compliant 
server. In other words, it would guarantee that if you deploy an aplication 
on J2EE 1.4, at least JSTL 1.1 will be there (you could eventually deploy 
your application with a newer version of JSTL).
