JSR 269 MR for Java SE 10 (and 11)

When running through our usual pre-release checklists, we spotted
something that had slipped under the radar.
There are updates to JSR 269 (javax.lang.model) in every version of Java
SE (at a very minimum, to add a new enum constant to the SourceVersion
enum.) These changes are made to the current release through the usual
OpenJDK and JCP processes. To benefit applications that want to run
against a range of platform versions and who are unable to use the specs
under GPL terms, we then also produce an MR of the standalone JSR 269 to
capture the changes. We then incorporate the JSR 269 spec by reference
into the platform spec.
For 10 and 11, we followed that process, but failed to note JSR 269 in
the Contributions section of the JSR document for JSR 383 (and 384).
Java SE had five spec changes that affected the contents of JSR 269.
The CSRs for these changes are here (they've been on the CSR dashboard
The MR for 269 (now in flight) will capture the spec changes above.
We want to add the MR of JSR 269 to the list of JSRs incorporated by
reference into Java SE 10. This has no effect on the content of the
release; all the changes in the MR (and the underlying JSR) are already
present in the Java SE 10 specs. The only change is the list of JSRs
incorporated by reference.
We'll want to do the same thing in 11 as well. (It is also possible
that JSR 199 (which is treated similarly, but doesn't necessarily
produce changes for every version) may have changes in 11 that will be
handled this way.)
If anyone has any questions or concerns, let me know. (There's really
nothing new here, other than retroactively checking a box.)
