ATM I don't think there is any 'production' usage of the new JBossXB.Builder/JAXB parsing.
Since we haven't done the full switch yet.

I'll have a look today, trying to provide the initial parsing deployer based on this stuff.
But for time being have a look at any XYZJaxbTestCase in Microcontainer module, and follow the trail to the parsing bit.

These are all good, concise explanations for the purpose of these concepts.  But then fails to explain how to actually use them in practice; e.g. I'm looking for something that says "To actually implement a deployer, extend XXX and provide implementations for YYY and ZZZ".
All agreed.
But the MC's VDF is a huge huge beast.
Providing example for every part is virtually impossible.

But I think the new concept of being able to comment on the docs will help with this problem. e.g. users providing best practices

And we can also keep a note of the things you users :-) want in the docs from the beginning. 
Having example of new cool JBossXB.Builder is a reasonable choice. :-)
