Thanks for bringing this up. No issue improving the exception messages, 
esp. incorrect API mis-use. I note that you've changed several 
InternalError where the JDK must be completely hosed (`java -version` 
would fail) if they were to arise.

Given that there will be significant code churn for several months then 
maybe it would be better to do a pass over the exceptions closer to JDK 
9 FC. Would you be okay with that? We can create an issue in JIRA to 
make sure that it doesn't get forgotten.
