No, AFAICT. Every JSR has the same restriction for compliant
implementations. A Field of Use restriction would be "not in
embedded devices". I'm not sure how this is handled until
you've reached the point where the implementation passes the
testcases to become a compliant implementation. But I've
never heard of problems with that stipulation either.
