I don't really understand the concern here - presumably the modules
will simply be removed from core, and the community will be at liberty
to change the module name and re-release the Nashorn component as GPL
on Maven Central?

Even in the absence of an Oracle-blessed upgrade path (whether that's
TruffleJS on HotSpot, or a full-blown move to GraalVM), the community
surely always has this option?
