I agree; flags should be adjustable in product builds for bug or perf analysis, hence diagnostic.

Otherwise, thumbs up.

Nice tests!

>> @Stable was added in 8 (back in September, 2013) as an experimental feature. Future JSR292 performance improvements rely on it, so it should be turned on by default.
