it doesn't.

actually I'm surprised that it *requires* jdk 1.5 and does not compile
with jdk 1.6. Compilation fails with following message:

cannot find symbol
symbol : method isRequired()
location: class

cannot find symbol
symbol : method isRequired()
location: class

... etc. Not sure what causes that (haven't investigated yet) but I
suspect JAXB from JDK 1.6 is picked up).

Current status is that I renewed continuous build and deployment to maven 2 repo, fresh 1.1-SNAPSHOT should became in one hour.
