The case for dependencies on automatic modules

Automatic modules are a great feature because they allow decentralized
and uncoordinated modularization. In an ecosystem as gigantic and
diverse as Java's that is _the only_ tractable approach!
Compared to that ability and in the big scheme of things, how an
automatic module's name is chosen is a small detail. That it might end
up preventing decentralized modularization is, frankly, ludicrous and
would reflect badly on the entire modularity endeavor.
As such I am convinced that everything must be done to keep that
possible, maybe including making decisions that would otherwise not be
the way to go.
