Yes, and you forgot SAAJ.

No, I don't believe so.

Some of these have tests in the jakartaee-tck repository because they
used to be in earlier versions of Java EE, but I believe these tests
are no longer executed as part of the platform TCK.

Jakarta EE 8 requires Java SE 8.  All of these are tested as part of Java SE 8
certification.  If you provide an implementation of any of these that overrides
the implementation in Java SE 8 (as GlassFish does), you'll need to run the
corresponding TCKs (as we do for GlassFish).

I was hoping we wouldn't have to deal with that until Jakarta EE 9.  :-)

If there's vendor demand to provide implementations of Jakarta EE 8 on
Java SE 11 or newer, we might need to define exactly what the requirements
are for that.  I don't believe we have any plans to support Eclipse GlassFish
5.x on Java SE 11 or newer.
