These are Java SE questions.

-Is it likely that JEP 306 could be updated in a Java update, earlier?
Apart from the assertion 'will not fix', accurate floating point
is a massive requirement.  It isn't very possible to do within-range
float or double multiplies, divides, powers, roots, or even things
in other classes like obtaining the distances between two points
(in Java2D and Java3D).

-Could there be a BigDecimal version of StrictMath
being put in to the standard libraries, under Java's own umbrella,
and not as someone else's separate library?
