If the XML failures are in TCK tests that relate to modules not included in 
the minimal assemblies, then what would we be breaking by removing Xerces/Xalan?

I was just hoping that we could keep them out of the minimal assemblies if 
they are not needed, since some users will want to use Java 5 and others are 
wanting Java 6 support, which both provide their own implementations at 
different feature levels....
