Updated JEP: nestmates

Open Issue;
"The method MethodHandles.Lookup.in exists primarily to provide reflective access to nestmate names. This method could perhaps be deprecated or more strongly restricted if the JVM provided systematic access to nestmate names."

This JEP is not about the JVM providing a way to add a new member to the nest,
so if a language (stupidly you may say) allow to dynamically add a new member to a nest, the runtime of that language still needs lookup.in().
