Ok, well we can add extra rules to this module:

* no non-optional dependencies on other jars (must be self contained)
* bean validation must have no deps outside BV api

I think it would be sensible to add a short contract.txt to each module to include these requirements. Shane, could you add these?

Technically that is the purpose of the maven enforcer plugin. With patience, it can be configured to fail the build when certain dependencies show up (or are outside of a pattern list).
