Can you expand a bit on this? If you are generating modules at run-time, 
maybe generating module-info.class files or via the Builder API, then I 
would expect that you at least know what packages are in the module and 
which packages are exported unconditionally. It sounds a bit strange to 
create a module without knowing anything about its contents (assuming 
that is what this is about).
