[jdom-interest] required dependencies

I am trying to determine the minimal dependencies for the Eclipse Orbit JDOM 
1.0 bundle [1]. The bundle currently specifies Xerces as a mandatory 
dependency. My understanding is that with Java 1.4 or higher this dependency 
is optional and JDOM will use the built-in XML parser of the JRE if Xerces is 
not available. 

Is the assumption correct that JDOM will work without any additional 
dependencies if running with Java 1.4 or higher?
