The attributes names are "Add-Exports" and "Add-Opens". JEP 261 needs a 
big update and one of the things needed is to document these attributes 
in the JEP (as they are JDK-specific attributes rather than attributes 
for the JAR file spec).

As the attributes are for executable JAR files only then the effect is 
to export or opens the packages to unnamed modules only (so no 
`=<target-module>` in the value).
