JEP draft: Identity Warnings for Inline Class Candidates

I had to squint a fair bit at "to use the new bytecode" before I realized
that new is intended to be monospaced, referring specifically to the JVM
bytecode instruction named new. At first I thought it was somehow talking
about "bytecode that is new" in general, e.g. classfiles that were compiled
recently could be "new" in some sense. Is there some way to refer
specifically to bytecode instructions?

Otherwise I'm a fan. Looks like a clear description of a feature I'm happy
to see coming.
