Hi Andrew,

The JEP is clear on the concept and has many more details than are necessary
to submit it.  Supplying so much detail at the earliest stage invites more
discussion about the implementation than the concept.

Usually, the details of API and implementation are added as the JEP 
By the time it is implemented and complete, the JEP description will be 
up to date and concrete.

Regards, Roger
