For a feature enhancement for jdk9 you'll need a JEP


This is the same process that we use internally at  Oracle.
Please explain in the JEP that this is a community provided
and supported feature.  Otherwise, the testing, support,
performance, etc. teams at Oracle will want to know how
this impacts them.  I've already been asked.

No.  I think that's premature and I also don't think
this integration should hinge just on me.  When
the integration is ready, ask for a sponsor on the
mailing lists.
