So nothing to do with java.base and the build will need to continue to generate the sources for the front-end (jdk.jdi) and back-end (jdk.jdwp.agent) as they implement the protocol.
My understanding of JEPs is that they should be viewed as living documents. In this case, I think it's perfectly valid to update JEP 201 with additional source code layout. Both for this and for the other missing dirs.
