The stuff in CPython's xml package is a select set of components from the 
PyXML whole.  The PyXML maintainer would manually sync up the components for 
each CPython release.  Note, PyXML is currently in need of a maintainer, 
Martin v. Loewis  has stepped down from that role.

That seems fine, but you may want to consider only including the set of 
components included in CPython to be in Jython (for consistency).  Although I 
am by no means versed in Jython packaging. Feel free to include whatever 
parts you desire.
