The JEP 2.0 process [1] is still being formulated so it is unclear to me 
how to advance this JEP at this time. I'm not even sure how to 
officially "review" it as such. The basic proposal is sound (similar to 
ppc64/aix). The engineering plan would need a lot more detail I think - 
perhaps discuss with Volker & Goetz to get details of what was needed 
for PPC64 with regard to the staging etc. Perhaps prepare webrevs for 
teh shared code changes and have them looked at by the different groups: 
hotspot, build, core-libs. Also it needs to be done in the context of 
the JDK 9 project, so this email probably needs to go to the jdk9-dev 
alias, and solicit support from the JDK 9 project lead.
