com.sun.management.ThreadMXBean (and other platform MXBeans) is a 
"sealed" interface which should only be implemented by JDK. 
Unfortunately we don't have the sealed type feature yet.  Yes it needs 
to be a default method.  I think it should throw UOE.

      * @implSpec
      * The default implementation throws {@code 

The @throw UOE can make it clear that it does not support current thread 
memory allocation measurement.
