will have the 'client' element only to support the CXF 2.x clients which use jaxrs:client
and expecting it to be in jaxrs.xsd, but no longer used by the CXF 3.x code which will use
a "client" in jaxrs-client.xsd instead. CXF 3.x itself ships jaxrs.xsd without "client".

I guess I can simply add the comments to the public jaxrs.xsd clarifying which consumers can
work with the "client" in the public jaxrs.xsd

We *might* be able to get 3.x to handle the client in the old namespace as well via the transformation
feature.   During the parsing of the element (either spring or blueprint), we could take the
element and use the transform to change all the namespaces.  Then call back into the blueprint/spring
container to have it parse/process that new element.
