Xerces is a good example indeed, they have a core dependency on the
Java W3C DOM API, for which source code is available in a form that's
acceptable as a core dependency of an Apache project.

Taking DOM level 2 as an example, its source code is available at

If you look in there there's a clear copyright notice and license (*),
along with buildable source code that allows one to recreate the w3c
dom level 2 jar file.

That's what we need for the W3C DDR if you want DeviceMap to be able
to release code that depends on it.

If such source code is not available, the alternative is for whoever
wants those modules out to fork them on github for example, as a
companion project that's not subject to Apache requirements. That
means changing package and product names to avoid confusion, but that
might be the best way to get something out.

terms to the Apache License 2.0, so all clear
