I agree that JavaNetUriAccess is a better name for this create method, as the shared secret is specific to URI.
One thing to note is that Dave DeHaven has a patch being reviewed to add a getAccessControlContext(URLClassLoader u) method to get ACC of a given URLClassLoader. I suppose your patch will be pushed soon. Dave should adjust his patch to add JavaNetURLClassLoaderAccess interface.
