I'm wondering why you don't have moved concerning documentation from sun.misc.* to 
java.lang.(Strict)Math. E.G.: The comment on the scalb operations:
  * The scalb operation should be reasonable ...

To save some source code footprint and allow better overview, I suggest to erase all javadoc of the 
moved methods except the deprecated note.
