packages are indeed not in sync with GNU Classpath.

I will look into those and fix the deviation. I assume that I must have

Yes. The GNU JAXP subproject of the classpathx project has been merged
into GNU Classpath. GNU classpathx contains various subprojects that
implement subprojects for different libraries that are not part of the
standard libraries (yet :) like javax.mail.
