I've had the pleasure of meeting Chris in person (DevoxxUK, earlier this year or last year, IIRC), and I'm definitely going to be going over that article later.
I guess what I'm leaning towards is a definitive "yes" or "no" as to whether Graal will be included as part of the *production* JDK releases, where the JEP talks about using the XX flags to turn on Experimental features, which are (probably) a non-starter for most production use scenarios, but I am willing to accept that Oracle may not know or want to commit to anything publicly at this point.
That said, if it's a given that it'll ship as part of production.... that would get me to do a happy dance, for sure. :-)

As far as I can tell Graal compiler is an important part of JDK9 (used for AOT
compilation). With few intrinsic switches it can even be turn on and used for
regular JIT compilation - find the details in the amazing Chris Seaton's
In addition to that Dalibor is right

more progress can be expected in forthcoming JDK releases.
