Two repositories use this drops mechanism, jaxp and jaxws, when both are changed, I will address the readme file.

>> 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 :)
