Andrew also brought the change to OpenJDK 7 - but there it only got the "openjdk7u" version tag. I guess that's what it would be for openjdk8u from now on as well - no "proper tags" if we don't take action.

Indeed, I'm still not happy with the 7u situation. It seems that doing something
better means contacting the ops team at Oracle to get them to add more versions
and fix their hgupdater [0].

I would make most sense to me that they created an openjdk8ux version when
they created jdk8ux, but I don't know if that's possible.

Similar for 11u, I imagine.
