I added the SimpleIntrospector and also adjusted the above wording in
the monitor package description to make it possible to have JMX in a
compact Profile of Java SE that didn't have java.beans.
The intention was that the SimpleIntrospector works like the beans
Introspector. So I agree this is the right thing to do but we should
create a bug for the issue that Daniel brings up.
