There was a discussion regarding these packages and what they should be
called. The discussion at hand (as I recall) was that there needed to be
a clear differentiation between the JSR77? and JMX packages, which is why
the package J2EE Management was created; see JSR77:

Are they not an implementation of the spec? From what I recall of the
discussions of JSR77, there were untyped interfaces that relied solely on
naming conventions in order to work. I recall that some generic
implementations were created to satisfy those naming conventions, but as
you say, they are not part of the 'official' interface.

All this is IIRC, because I wasn't involved with the JSR77 stuff, just
dredging up thoughts from the back of my mind.
