Good question. The charter for Da Vinci is to incubate JVM features for languages other than Java (tail call), or for general language support without associated Java language changes (invokedynamic). It envisions value types, but those are now properly part of Valhalla.
Valhalla is intended to support the evolution of Java itself.
