Insofar as the resolution of those issues requires changes in JDK 9
then those changes will be subject to the above process, but I don't
expect that to present any difficulties.  All of the relevant JEPs
should shortly be granted FC extensions.

As to the issues themselves, I'm drafting a few proposals which I hope
to post here shortly.
