This request is for the following changeset to be included in M5:

  The update is to use a newer jaxp source bundle from upstream:

As Joe Wang mentions (see above), these changes are already in JDK6u18.
That should make the risk level low.

If we do nothing, this change is already in the TL forest, which means
by default it would go into M6 (probably b77).

Joe Wang and Jim Melvin are asking me to request that the change be pulled
in for M5 because a licensee and partner has been asking for it (and they
continue to ask for it).
