Yes, I think a JEP would be good to have so that this port gets onto the 
technical roadmap. I can't imagine it being more than one page to 
describe the "feature" and maybe the testing. There are several other 
JEPs for ports so some of the text can be re-used. JEPs are great for 
capturing decisions and other information that might be useful to 
maintainers down the road. Also helps to get a bit of exposure as many 
developers and bloggers only pick up on the JEPs in a release (and 
ignore the hundreds of other features).
