No it is not. Here is an explanation from Jon:
"The class specified in an "@run main" directive is subject to an 
implicit "@build" meaning that it will be compiled if needed."
But it does no harm and my intention was to change as little as possible.

If @build is not specified it can lead to intermittent failures when for example running tests concurrently, since javac implicit compilation and @library and -concurrency don't play well together.
