With SO each wave function will still have  a "up" and a ""down" part, but they 
are connected and cannot be separated,
(indeed not s(1/2,+1/2) or s(1/2,-1/2), at least in the 2 component version 
they are purely up or down, as well as all others with j=l+s, mj=+-j).
how does Wannier deal with the |j, m_j> or say better with the relativistic 
|kappa, mu> wave functions ?

Great.

If I am not mistaken (certainly people on this list can correct me if I
am), with SOC you should have called spaghetti as ‘x spaghetti -so’,
which would have produced GaAs.spaghetti_ene.  In the presence of SOC, a
priori it does not make sense to talk of separate “↑” and “↓” states.
