I think the project will need to work closely with the Jigsaw project as moving to modules will require significant changes to the build  (for example the build will need to generate a modules image and the sources may need to be reorganized in terms of modules). It may be worth including this in the list of goals.

Agreed, if we can't make this work, and work well, for jdk8/jigsaw, we will be wasting our time.
