Kelly asked for 6-open and jdk8 as well. Since we're changing the jaxp 
bundle process, we thought we would do the same for 6-open and jdk8 once 
this works out.  But we can take the change to jdk8 first if this is 
approved.  The only question I had was that the jdk8 modularization 
would change the jaxp source structure.  But Kelly thought that's not a 
problem. I guess we don't mind another big changeset :)
