It would also be reasonable to semi-automate checking whether this sort of edit is necessary as a formal jtreg test, perhaps using a static checked-in copy of the JLS and JVMS index, which is maybe updated near the end of each release. If you think that is worth pursuing, maybe you could file an issue in JBS.
