I was just thinking the same thing. It is extremely convenient to be able to
"override" individual class implementations using the bootclasspath. It
would have been far less convenient if -Xbootclasspath had required you to
use a jar rather than just a class. The same will go for modulepath if we
can only "override" modules not individual classes within them.
