Yes, but until all the "safe" replacements are in place and vetted (e.g.
performance is on par with Unsafe, same functionality is available, etc), I
don't see the point of making it even more annoying to grab hold of.  The
people who are using it will continue using it until the replacements are
available, and this is just going to annoy them.  Personally, I'd keep it
at javac complaining about its use during compilation, and only add
additional flag/burden once you're ready for people to move away from it
