modifiers of default methods

Using jdk1.8.0-lambda-8-b56 I can compile the following

public interface I {
	strictfp synchronized void foo() default {}

public class C implements I {
	public static void main (String[] args) {

but any attempt to run the resulting class files gives:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.ClassFormatError: Method foo in 
class I has illegal modifiers: 0x821

Does the VM require bit AccDefaultMethod to be set (I haven't yet
seen a specification of that flag), or is the VM simply not updated
to accept the newly legal combination of modifiers?
