I'm a bit confused: I was sure BCEA-style params do affect EA, but don't affect scalar replacement. With bcEscapeAnalyser you can get (sort of) inter-procedural EA, but this only allows you to have more allocations identified as ArgEscape instead of GlobalEscape. But you can't get more NoEscape without real inlining. ArgEscape (afaik) is used only for synchronization removals in HotSpot, not for scalar replacements. 

Am I incorrect?
