As I understand it, the platform spec for javax.script is soley the
API's for managing script engines. That's all the TCK would test
because their scope is soley the spec'd stuff.
We chose to deliver Rhino with the platform because it would add some
useful additional abilities. That does not place Rhino within the scope
that the TCK would test.
