I think Fredrik has a point here. If the idea of using the 
GenerateNativeHeader (without any particular regard to modularization) 
is problematic, then we already have a problem since we already have put 
in GenerateNativeHeader annotations across the code base.

If this approach is not working, then we need to revert those 
annotations. This calls for a separate webrev anyway.

If this approach *is* working, then this change adds no new problems.

So we could avoid stalling this push (which is needed to be able to 
continue working on build-infra in the Jigsaw forest) by allowing the 
additional GenerateNativeHeaders for now, and then continuing the 
discussion if the whole idea of GenerateNativeHeaders really work in the 
modularized world, and if not, replace them all with a working solution.

Does that sound OK to you?
