No, there's nothing in there that I'm aware of that would prohibit this
You're right of course. The thing that seems to be getting in my way is
actually the Surefire Maven plugin. I've created the TCK project separately
and configured the Compile plugin to generate a
seam-cron-asynchronous-tck-tests.jar which I'm then including in the
asynchronous provider's project like so:
However Maven still concludes that there aren't any test to run for that
project. I suppose that's for good reason, but I'd like to work out how I
can have these imported tests run by Surefire, rather than just the ones in
src/test/java. I'll keep trying but please chime in if anyone has any ideas.
Here's the "official way" of doing it:

You're @Deployment should be in the test class, but that doesn't stop you
from having a base method that setup everything and just returns an archive
you can add to, or even merge(...) in your @Deployement method.
Would this require me to extend each of the TCK test classes in the
provider project, in order to be able to add to the archive returned by the
base method? This is something I wanted to avoid (even though it would
clearly solve problem 1).
You could simply call the method and then modify or merge the two archives
