Agreed.

I think we were talking about different compilation processes.
I was referring to Math, and I (now) assume you were referring to code
that uses Math.

To give a concrete example, clone() and List<T>.get() etc no longer need casts.
Removing the cast prevents the code from being compiled under 1.4, but
does not affect other code compiled using 1.4.

Agreed.
