Thanks for sharing and asking. 
Not exactly, I'm working the prototype of https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8256265 which is to improve the parallelism of evac failure process. I'm using taskqueue to implement the balance among threads, it took me a while to fix a crash issue which finally prove to be the wrong usage of taskqueue, and I think it would cost me less time if the asserts already existed there.
Please kindly let me know if you think I can help on the things related to "stealing and task termination". :)
