Yes, it's very tempting to make the source conform to one's own "cultural of code format" (and it's all to easy to hit the reformat hot key in the IDE) [*].

Thanks. I updated the webrev to add "@since 1.9" to the docs.
[*] I would be quite happy with a Java endorsed "culture of code format" and just configure the IDE to format to that (one less thing to think about). I am rather skeptical that any consensus driven approach can produce such a format before the heat death of the universe. Someone with trusted taste and leadership needs to make a proposal, one is allowed to comment during a period of time, but one is not allowed to comment on other people's comments :-)
