  My initial understanding was that System.exit() shouldn't terminate
the process. But the experiments proved the opposite. AFAIU if you
want to embed the application then it should not call System.exit().
  I don't see any problems to extend the proposal to the case of
System.exit() so that the process will not be stopped. But, do we want
such incompatibility with RI?
