Compact profile modules

The build I'm currently using (jigsaw-b151) doesn't contain the java.compactN modules anymore. Looks like this is a deliberate removal [1], although I can't find any reason for it. Are they permanently gone? Why? They made for such a nice example of implied readability in the JDK... They were also useful in constructing small images with jlink. As I understood things at JavaOne, jlink with the compact module definitions was supposed to be a 'migration path' from Java SE 8 embedded.
