This document only addresses how to use OSGi bundles in the Java Module 
System (i.e. the original goal #1).

The Java Module System already provides reflective API that allows the 
OSGi framework to make use of JAM modules (i.e. the original goal #2) if 
the framework implementation chooses to provide the support. That said, 
defining the semantic and syntax of how an OSGi bundle should import a 
JAM module in the OSGi framework is actually outside the scope of 277, 
thus it is not covered in this document.

I'm going to be offline very soon. I will follow up the remaining issues 
you raised tomorrow.
