While I completely share Goetz's and Martin's concerns, I think these
are "just" Oracle's rules which only apply for the first two update
releases (i.e. 11.0.1 and 11.0.2). From my understanding anybody who
takes over the project lead after 11.0.2 (which might be already in
about 4 month or so) can define whatever new rules he likes for the
jdk11u project afterwards.
