I would argue that there is nothing incorrect about those statements. No
client of Pool should be using any (.*)MXBean class directly since the
sole purpose of such a class is to expose $1 via JMX.

I don't think anything belongs in the release notes about this. The
MXBean naming convention should be familiar to anyone using Pool. If it
is felt that something more needs to be done then I'd suggest adding an
explicit warning to all the MXBean classes that they must not be used
directly by clients and that they may change in compatible ways between
any release including point releases.
