[javaee-spec users] Is an application's module's alt-dd supposed to be authoritative?

Consider an application.xml that includes a module.

Suppose that module specifies an alt-dd.

Can the alt-dd so specified be "sparse"? That is, is it merged with the
"real" deployment descriptor that may be present in the module, or does it
trump it?
