Just minor comment:
Many times I saw very strange behavior in jdk which I was absolutely
sure about: definitely a bug. But then... I found applications which
used those strange things!

I hust want to say that it is important to be very careful when
deciding what is bug: it is very probable to find an application
basing on it (java world is very very huge :) ).
