The reason I asked about the CSR scope clarification is that it was
unclear to me what the ultimate intentions are, given that the previous
mails ( linked to from the CSR ) did have Java SE API changes ( in the
java.util.zip package ).

Are you now happy to reduce the scope of the proposal to be confined to
the "jar" filesystem provider, or is this more of an initial step
towards ultimately adding new Java SE APIs, to zip, to access these
permissions ( as was in previous emails )? As well as possibly updating
the tools to add such?
