Thanks for the reminder and suggested text. I updated the @implSpec
Some @implNotes describe the JDK implementation and some developers will
rely on the implementation specifics and to some degree define the

The ProcessBuilder produced subclasses of Process implement the spec
so no additional description is needed.

It does not add much but I added a paragraph to the Process class javadoc.
There are not many subclasses of Process outside the JDK.
The webrev and javadoc have been updated in place.
