I'm not 100% sure what you mean by "reserved" but I will guess that you 
asking if there is a complete list of the system properties defined by 
the Java SE APIs and perhaps the list of JDK-specific system properties 
too. Off-hand, I'm not aware of a master list, they are instead "buried" 
in the API specs. Is the context the system properties that JAXP 1.5 is 
proposing to define?
