The motivation was this -- in a J2SE (now, Java SE) application, there may
not be a thread context class loader at all, or it might have completely
different semantics than what the EE specs require for a servlet container's
thread context class loader. It seemed safer to avoid potential class
loading mysteries to implement this as the default.
