The extra orthogonality conditions being tested are those imposed by the
RE estimator. These are the conditions that the Xs are orthogonal to
the time-invariant error u_j.
Also, allowing for heteroskedaticity or clustering doesn't "impose"
anything, let alone impose orthogonality conditions. On the contrary -
it means the test statistic is robust to (has the right distribution
under the null even in the presence of) heteroskedasticity and
