Thanks, Alex, for your answer, and sorry for the long delay on my side.

I found the background regarding deprecation of packages quite interesting,
and agree to most of what you say.

Wouldn't it be more consistent to give such warnings?
Why should writing code in an unnamed vs. named module make a
difference in whether or not I'm seeing deprecation warnings?

Would you consider a compiler that issues such warnings as violating JLS?
