None of my business as to the format that you use but I hope that
developers will be strongly discouraged from editing the module
declarations post compilation, otherwise it may result in issues at
runtime that are hard to diagnose. Note that I'm not talking about the
custom meta-data as I don't know if that can be validated at build time.
I'm also not talking about tool agents as they may need to augment the
access control rules for instrumentation purposes.
