MR 3 of JSR 206 (or JAXP 1.6 as it was called) in late 2013 announced 
its end as a standalone technology. Going forward then the proposal is 
that it be subsumed into the platform. Given the pluggability then it 
shouldn't impact those deploy with service providers implementations, 
it's really only an issue for those that were replacing the API classes 
via the endorsed standards override mechanism. The need to do the latter 
has diminished significantly in the recent years.
