The tests look great though.

Thank you for doing the InstanceKlass cleanup.  Also, to answer Remi's

methods, we'd have to change the metadata types for Klass to represent 
that and would have to change the code so that access through the 
host_klass has meaning.  This code is clean for the JDK9 meaning of
