My comment was not just about domain queries, it also addressed the 
split of names and patterns, which you comment does not address.

Saying that "removing complexity is good" is like saying "puppies are 
cute".  Yes we all agree, but that does not prove that this feature 
results in complexity, and that removing it will result in less 
complexity.  Complexity is a hydra, you chop off one head and it 
reappears somewhere else.

I personally do not find the domain query complex and we already have a 
fully working implementation in the non-jmx registry.  I do not think 
that removing it will make this class noticeably simpler, but maybe you 
are thinking of some other code.

Is there some other reason you want to remove these feature?
