That is a nice Aprils fool of you :-)

I think the only thing you can make April fools jokes about these days are toilet paper :)

Is(n't) the main obstacle of just including it that MicroProfile does
not have the IP
protection has, as it does not use the Eclipse Spec Process? If so, I
guess just
waiting on that Process to be used may be as good/quick as a fork and
prevent the two from drifting apart. Or that contributors have to
submit changes to two projects.

But I am sure I am missing some things

The decision within MicroProfile to go with the "Pull" approach to technical alignment actually advocates forking rather than referencing. Jakarta EE can then decide on what level of backward compatibility it wants without relying on the decisions made by MicroProfile. Just my 2 cents.
