This isn't interesting for the Reader/Writer objects returned by the proposed static methods so a one-line that says that the object used to synchronize operations is not specified might help. It would avoid something synchronizing on the reader or writer and expecting operations read/write methods to block

Is that a difference from the null InputStream/OutputStream here?
