If the sole motivation for this change is JDK-8152711, then I think we
should not make this change.  I disagree with the current proposal for
addressing JDK-8152711; I think there is a better alternative for that
which doesn't need the change proposed by this RFR.

If there is some other motivation, I'd be willing to consider this
change on that basis.
