The javadoc for MethodsHandes.Lookup is probably the best place to 
start, assuming you haven't used it before. This has a good section to 
explain how access checking differs to core reflection.

JDK-8162494 [1] is one issue where John has a write-up with some straw 
man designs. I suspect it will require working through a few specific 
examples to get a feel for what is the right direction.
