I've no doubt that many people would be uncomfortable taking
responsibility to modularize a component that they don't maintain or
have full knowledge of. In the early exploration phase of Project Jigsaw
then we have some basic tooling to help with exactly that approach but
it has long been left behind. One reason is that potential for anarchy
with several people converting the same library to a module. You might
not like automatic modules but at least the module descriptors that are
derived are very predictable (including the name).
