The exported API in jdk.xml.dom module is one case where [1] promotes 
these subpackages be supported APIs in JDK 9.

Do you have a specific internal API in mind? [2] lists some relevant info.

There are several JEPs integrated in JDK 9 that define APIs that should
be used to replace some internal APIs e.g. JEP 259, 268, 272, 276
