I agree with this observation.  

I was at Java One this week.  Two days ago during a Q and A session
with Sun's Mustang engineering team, the question was asked if they
implemented Mustang in Java.  The answer was something like, "Sunlabs
is doing research in building a JVM in java.  When they get it
correct, Mustang will incorporate it.  Mustang currently has a lot of
C/C++ code."

I also see merit in this observation.
