Thanks, I think this makes sense.

For further down the road then consideration could be given to make 
ZipFileAttributes/ZipFileAttributeView public and supported so as to 
provide type safe access to zip specific attributes.

JarFileSystemProvider will also need discussion at some point to decide 
whether it should be added to the service configuration file so that JAR 
URLs are supported.
