Thanks for doing this.

With this application/libraries used to put xml-apis-2.11.0.jar on the 
endorsed/ext directory or classpath no longer needs to do that because 
org.w3c.dom.ElementTraversal was not part of the DOM API endorsed by 
JAXP in JDK 8.

I skimmed through the change that looks okay.

214                         URI _uri = new URI(uri, true);

This change removed the catching of MalformedURLException that will fall 
back to use parentBaseURI. i.e. now it won't fall back to use 
parentBaseURI if line 214 throws MUE.  Is that intentional?
