com.sun is a mixed bag. There are lots of com.sun.*.internal that are 
clearly JDK internal/implementation/stay-away but several useful and 
documented APIs are in com.sun too (the JDK build generates the javadoc 
for these). In addition there are several APIs with murkier pasts, 
transitional APIs for areas that previous had a life as a standalone 
technology before coming into the JDK.
