There already is jdk9+ which gets set in check-optional-packages

Not being able to resolve a class a javodc comment links used to be no
error but only a warning, so I am stubborn and consider the problem a
warning. :-)

No idea. You'd probably have to fiddle with profiles, then. Do we really
want to invest time in making the POMs suitable for building javadocs?
To me their only purpose is to be useful together with jars we publish
to Maven central. I know they can be used to build and test the parts in
question but that's not really something that is important IMHO.
