Re: [ee4j-community] EE4J Project Proposals
Sadly you are making a big assumption that Oracle is that enlightened, judicious and rational of a company. That said, we in the Java EE Guardians community still do operate under that assumption whether it is true or not. Assuming anything else does not lead us anywhere good.
We will be basically asking Oracle together as a community exactly what you did in the next few days. Hopefully it makes some kind of difference.

I think that's the very point of this issue.
We're not asking Oracle to allow us use of JAX-RS in our private lives, we're asking for use of the acronym as part (or total) of a project name that will be trademarked (or licensed, etc) by Eclipse.
As such, this is not a matter of using JAX-RS itself, but its legal validity as part of another trademark. With the specific situation where the acronym DOES stand for a trademarked brand/name/project/etc.
As Mrinal said, things would be different if JAX-RS had no meaning, but the project name explicitly informs that it's the short form of a trademarked brand.
We'll still be able to call it just JAX-RS between ourselves, in slides, on courses, etc. But Eclipse won't be able to use it in a trademark.
