Expounding on #ModuleNameSyntax

It seems to me that the syntax requirements presently established for 
Jigsaw in particular are really specific to the module layer(s) handled 
by the JDK.  It is easy to imagine containers and other such systems 
that are provided in their own layers might have different, pre-existing 
syntax requirement (we have such a situation with our existing module 
environment, allowing (in some layers) names with hypens, slashes, 
etc.).  Shouldn't syntax checking of names be a policy decision of the 
module layer, rather than a global policy?
