Interesting question. Of course one could say that java imports are just
a shortcut in the language since you could write the same program with the same
executing bytecodes if you use use full classnames for every Class mentioned in
your program. So you could say they are not part of the model.

On the other hand, the package declaration is part of the model.

Now this is two things are different from the <import> task IMHO because
<import> (or whatever we call it) is not replaceable by something else
and keeping the same meaning.
