I don't know if a lambda would help here but I think changing would 
require a lot of testing to make sure that there aren't any side 
effects. We've had a couple of cases where code using lambdas early in 
the startup has lead to recursive initialization issues (due to various 
code paths in the lambda meta factory code). In this case, the system 
and extensions class loaders are URLClassLoader so this code is likely 
to be executed early. So if the intention is to push this to jdk8u-dev 
(which I think it is) then we would just need to make sure that it is 
well tested.
