Kirk,

As you are aware we are discussing this in this email thread:

http://mail.openjdk.java.net/pipermail/hotspot-gc-dev/2012-December/thread.html#5361

We need to get a fix in soon, so we can not continue discussing this for 
too long. Deprecating iCMS is in my opinion a reasonable conclusion of 
the discussion in the above email thread.
