This got stalled on the niggle of toArray(null) which would be ambiguous, and likely affects tests in the TCK.

IMHO it would be a shame if we cannot update due to source code compatibility that is only ever likely to occur with tests, some of which we can easily fix.

On a related note we added the default method Collection.removeIf(Predicate<? super E> filter), originally it was called removeAll but changed to due the same source code incompatibility, so we could revisit that name too.
