I went through the updated module descriptions.

Two more that seem to be missing "the" are and jdk.sctp, I think 
they will read okay once that is added.

jdk.httpserver currently has "Defines the JDK-specific API for HTTP 
server", it might be better to re-shuffle this to "Defines the API for 
the JDK-specific HTTP server".

I think the only one that needs re-examination is jdk.charsets. The 
java.base module contains the standard charsets and all other charsets 
needed to start the runtime on any of the supported configurations. It 
thus varies by platform with jdk.charsets providing the charsets that 
aren't in java.base. Finding the right description is difficult, maybe 
we should start with "Charset provider for the charsets that are not in 
java.base (mostly double byte and IBM charsets". I could imagine linking 
this to the "Supported encodings" docs page in time.

Everything else looks good.
