What you propose sounds ok, Kabir; the rest of this is just food for
Is this a layers thing or a modules thing?
IOW layers don't exist at runtime, they are just a convenience for
building. What matters at runtime is whether a module is provisioned.
And there are things that can be done with Galleon and modules that result
in modules getting installed if their deps are present and not installed if
they are not.
So it might not be necessary to have a bunch of layers (for sure that
sounds wrong) but it might not also be necessary to package classes
representing all the providers in one module and then fail because some
dependency like RESTEasy isn't present. You could package the provider
class in a module and it only gets installed if all its deps (e.g.
RESTEasy) are present.
That kind of thing might be more effort than it's worth (e.g. if we're
talking about a single class per provider it's kind of overkill.)
One thing we should think carefully about is using the word 'layer' in
runtime messages. That's kind of a slippery slope as layers really are a
convenience for provisioning and are not a runtime concept. So talking
about them at runtime starts to blur those lines.

I think your proposal is the most extensible one (in the sense that
will still work unchanged if microprofile-context-propagation adds more
providers). In particular, it seems reasonable for the JTA context provider.
