"Incomplete" meant "JDK 12 is not yet completed".
Perhaps that could have been worded differently like "a non-final 
version of JDK12".
I think the intent was to make it clear what JDK version this was. Eg it 
is not built on top
of 11 GA. It is built on top of the current JDK development branch .. 
which happens to be
intended to become 12. And actually the NEXT build will be built on top 
of JDK 13 ..
since 12 just forked off to be stablised for release.

jpackage can't be separated from the JDK any more than all the other tools
that ship with JDK. It is not going to be a "standalone" tool that "happens"
to be bundled with the JDK.
