JSR-292: Why not java.lang.dyn?

For the background on my reasoning, the popular shift towards dynamic
languages makes me wonder how far off a C#-like dynamic feature is for
Java too. I hedge my bet that it will eventually happen -- years upon
years away -- when more serious use cases are found. Thus, to prevent
the case of split packages (java.dyn and java.lang.dyn), I chose to
bring up the discussion.

Ben and John, thank you for your responses. It is good to understand
your vantage.
