        Description

        JDK 8 includes 11 org.w3c.dom.** packages:
          org.w3c.dom
          org.w3c.dom.bootstrap
          org.w3c.dom.css
          org.w3c.dom.events
          org.w3c.dom.html
          org.w3c.dom.ls
          org.w3c.dom.ranges
          org.w3c.dom.stylesheets
          org.w3c.dom.traversal
          org.w3c.dom.views
          org.w3c.dom.xpath

        Only five of them are endorsed in Java SE 8:
          org.w3c.dom
          org.w3c.dom.bootstrap
          org.w3c.dom.events
          org.w3c.dom.ls
          org.w3c.dom.views

        This issue is to re-examine the supportedness of the six non-endorsed packages. After all, most of the non-endorsed packages are included in the Java Plug-in's "Common DOM API" [1] which is referenced from the Java Tutorial [2] and the JDK Deployment Guide [3] :
           org.w3c.dom.css
           org.w3c.dom.html
           org.w3c.dom.ranges
           org.w3c.dom.stylesheets
           org.w3c.dom.traversal

        (org.w3c.dom.xpath is the sole non-endorsed package not included in the Common DOM API.)

        [3] http://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/deployment/applet/manipulatingDOMFromApplet.html

        Until this issue is resolved, the java.xml module in JDK 9 will include all 11 packages but export only the five endorsed packages. The above docs should also be updated per the resolution of this bug.
