OK, thanks for confirming. I promise to catch up on emails soon ;)
It has not come up at the spec committee level as yet. It is only starting to show up in this discussion when trying to wrap our heads around what a Jakarta EE 9 name change only release means.
Maybe we should move to a model of LTS releases like OpenJDK? Sets a specific expectation with users that some versions are more "experimental" than others.
Now maybe this has already been discussed on the spec committee - I'm way behind on emails so cannot say for sure.
And even worse: we would break backward compat with every Jakarta EE release :(
