I think it's too early to know if modularization will require the jaxp 
source code to be restructured as modules. It would clearly be 
desirable, in particular if jaxp migrates completely. However, if there 
are still activity upstream (you mentioned monitoring 
commits at jaxp-sources.java.net) or some need to keep the 7u and 8 code in 
sync then it would complicate things a bit.
