One other valuable bit of valuable info missing from the current bug writeup is an explanation of why the RFE (request for enhancement) matters. Where is the problem encountered, how widespread is the problem, how much of a bottleneck does it represent, etc.? Any context you can provide can only help to attract attention and effort to this problem. 

I suspect that in the past there was a resistance to converting to ConcurrentHashMap because of the additional overhead that CHM introduced. This has been fixed in JDK 7 so this resistance may no longer apply.

It would also be good to create a standalone test case that can be used to demonstrate the contention (we could add it to tests in jdk/test/java/lang/reflect/Proxy so that future maintainers have some performance tests to run). If a patch is attached then you could start a discussion here, get it reviewed, and get a sponsor to help get it in.
