IcedTea-Web  have now patch  from  thread, to work pretty smooth with all Icedteas, all Openjdks and all Oracle javas. It even do work with IBM java.
However, we needed to include few lines of copypasted code  line 274-283. Well it is not so much, but is potentially dangerous.
If this mini changeset - http://jvanek.fedorapeople.org/oracle/jdk9/applet-minipatch/1/webrev/ may go in, it would be awesome and will make icedtea-web true Openjdk plugin. Do you think it is possible?
Just note - there already was a discussion about unnecessary complex version of similar patch -  thread. As result it forbid any touches to sun.applet package. However current webrev do not add any more visibility. It changes from private to package private. I hope it is much more suitable
I sent this message originally to jdk9-dev.. It/I was wrong I guess. Sorry
