JDK 7 is Feature-Complete

My initial question was indeed if there will be separate HSX release
trains for JDK6 and JDK7 after  the release of JDK7.

I think Erik mostly answered the question and I personally also think
that one HSX train from JDK8 to JDK6 AND JDK7 would be the most
natural and reasonable solution. But of course this is up to Oracle to
decide on this...

Thank you for the answers and best regards,
