   > > Caveat: Instances of [Random](https://docs.oracle.com/javase/8/docs/api/java/util/Random.html),
upon which the implementation of this class relies, are not cryptographically secure.
   > 
   > doesn't lead the reader to conclude the class is not to be used for the purpose of
security and in turn minimally use `SecureRandom` (as stipulated in the `java.util.Random`
javadoc, to which we've linked).
   
   Any chance of coming around to "let's be secure" as a default position?
