There isn't a system/application class loader and delegation to
extension and boot class loader when running with modules. Also options
such -Xbootclasspath, -classpath. etc. don't really make sense. So this
is the reason this although the word "mode" is a bit unfortunate.

As Karen mentioned in one of the mails, the changes mean we can
experiment with this so that we can understand the impact of the change.
