Because we never agreed to move to 1.7. And I don't think it makes
sense. Java 6 is not even EOL yet (close, yes).
The only 1.7 source requirement as I understand it is that jaxb
"required" thing that you added.
We do currently need *javac* from 1.7 to compile master (and metamodel
since we are merging master into it) but that is due to a bug in the 1.6
javac (see earlier email to the dev list). But there is actually
nothing there that is not 1.6 compatible in either source nor bytecode.

seeing this all the times:
warning: [options] bootstrap class path not set in conjunction with -source 1.6
since now we need JDK 7 to compile master/metamodel, is there any reason that we still
set the source level to 1.6?
