Unless I'm completely misunderstanding, that's not what is being 
proposed. What is being proposed is refactoring code that's currently 
duplicated across the JVM & JDK into a common library. Such a library 
would be a standard Java component, not non-standard and not 
third-party. I can't see what the problem is, to be honest.
