Please review this specification-only change to allow RMI activation to
be optional. RMI activation, unlike the rest of RMI, pretty much
requires the ability to fork processes at will. This causes difficulties
in certain situations, such as in small embedded configurations.
Activation is typically unnecessary in such environments, hence it makes
sense for it to be optional.
Essentially the change is the addition of a small paragraph to the
package doc for java.rmi.activation, and adding spec for throwing
UnsupportedOperationException to a bunch of methods in this package.
