Alan is right that the 2D list is the right place for this.
But that bug report is mainly about a migration plan for removing
it from even the "closed" JDK, which then aligns better with openjdk.

A principal reason this is not in openjdk is that the code is 
encumbered, and
given that is not part of the platform spec, that it was always 
advertised as
an interim solution, and was superseded a long time ago
it was a waste of effort to even consider re-implementing it.
