So, as I understood:
 - work for improving enhanced strings literals proposal will be useless,
it's finally rejected in project coin (?),[ so will wait for java 7.1 or
later with them]
 -  improving proposal about access to compile-time information about
local context can have some sence (?)

For other proposals which are not accepted and interesting for me:
 Are exists change that naming parameters proposal will be in short list ?
