This may be a stupid idea, so disregard it if it is :)
If the problem is having isValidateRoot() used by AWT code, why not promote:
public/protected boolean isValidateRoot()
to the Container class? It would obviously return false by default,
but if custom code wants to play with it (which is anyway unlikely to
happen) why not! After all, is there anything specially swingish with
this method?
