I didn't see any replies to this but I'm willing to do an inventory. We 
need this for our modularity work anyway and I think we already have a 
good handle on most of what is in the com.sun hierarchy. There are also 
a few APIs, com.apple for example, where I'm actually interesting in 
establishing their status as they came in without too much discussion.

This is just build related as there are "supported" APIs in the 
langtools repository. I see Joe has added the already added the proposed 
annotation to com.sun.source.
