I'm not sure if such API clarifications are suitable for update 
releases. It hasn't been too regular in the past since we don't 
re-publish the API docs post GA of the major release family. I do 
understand however that docs may be republished when 8u20 is released.  
8030848 was a corner case issue that came up earlier in the week. It 
involved code change and some implementation clarification via API 

I'm cc'ing Joe Darcy here. It would be good to get guidance from him 
around suitability of including 8032392 in an update release. 8032392 
appears to be a clarification of spec and I'm checking to see if that's 
suitable for an update release.
