In light of Thomas Watson's initial attempt to achieve bidirectional
interoperation between OSGi and JPMS [1], my subsequent suggestion that
this can be done indirectly with the present design by modeling a dynamic
module as a sequence of JPMS modules over time [2] if given a solution to
#NonHierarchicalLayers [3], and then Watson's validation of that approach
[4], it appears that we no longer have any need to address the above four
issues, at least as far as OSGi is concerned.

David: Is this approach workable for JBoss Modules as well?  If so then
I'd like to close these issues out; if not then I'd like to understand
if there are additional, smaller changes that would make this approach
acceptable while avoiding the complexity of complete solutions to these
