It is the module where the main class is per the value of the 
"jdk.module.main" system property.  If not set, the initial module is an 
unnamed module.  What about adding the following to @implNote?

      * The "{@code jdk.module.main}" system property specifies the name
      * of the initial module if it is a named module.  If not defined,
      * the initial module is an unnamed module.
