If the Layer has a hook into amending the Module Descriptor, then I am hoping each Container will automatically set "dynamic" to each non-exported package. I think this will be a highly requested and sought-after feature.

That’s probably something we would do if this notion remains. Unfortunately it means that you would then have different behavior for standalone SE usage and container usage, making it harder to share code. It also might introduce a conflict that wasn’t there before (e.g. split package)
