it is not too unlikely that that will be your best bet for the time being.
At the moment (Java8) my understanding is that you don't need to use a
modified JRE as the hack with the native window handle currently works IIRC
but that is likely to change in Java9 due to enforcement of invisibility of
non-public api. Then you may have to modify the JRE if no command line
switch is provided to switch this off (which I think they are planning for
a grace period). It is far from ideal as you say but Oracle has not shown
any interest in pursuing this topic, so I don't see that changing soon.
