I've updated JEP 261 (http://openjdk.java.net/jeps/261).  Major changes

  - The special ALL-DEFAULT module name, which represents the default
    set of root modules for use with the -addmods option [1];

  - A more thorough explanation of how the built-in class loaders have
    changed, how built-in modules are assigned to each loader, and how
    these loaders work together to load classes [2]; and

  - The reason why Java EE-related modules are no longer resolved by
    default [3].

There are various other minor corrections and clarifications, as can be
seen in the detailed diff [4].
