By "legacy classes in a module", do you mean JSR 277 module? Since JSR 277
is currently also targeted for JDK 7, a JSR 277 module will not run on JDK
6 regardless of superpackages (unless potentially as a plain JAR file,
which would largely defeat the purpose of making it a module).
Or which other deployment mechanism are you thinking of?
