I'm trying to base a ClassLoader off the java.home property now. Not working yet but it probably should so hopefully I'll get there.

Since that is a little tricky, I may definitely in this instance file the enhancement request. I would think other application based code would want reasonably convenient tools.jar availability, not just me for this one.
