Good question. My answer is we would never know all classes dynamically loaded 
at runtime. Think about application server, where all applications are deployed 
at runtime, generate a minimized JRE for this system, I believe, is a impossible 

I think the purpose of class-selector is helping application which don't depends 
on dynamical class loading or knows (at deployment time) which classes will be 
dynamically loaded. There are a lots of java desktop applications, they may be 
never changed after deploying, so I think it's one scenario for class-selector. 
You may can find more places for class-selector :)
