I've never understood why editability is an issue. Surely, all patches have to be reviewed (and for 6 and 7 release trees, approved by the release manager), so if you don't want a change to be made, you can just not approve it. Where's the issue?

This sounds good. Is it planned for jaxws too? How about CORBA?
With IcedTea we've had to hack things in the build to work around the fact that these repos depend on stuff in the JDK, so
having just the three repositories (langtools, hotspot and jdk) would be great!
