My point is to leave -Xbootclasspath/p as long as we can't have a 
working java 9 version.
This would prevent someone from generating some invalid man files and 
commit them (or even release them) if no-one spots it. At first, I 
didn't notice the issue with the man page, and apparently Eric neither.
I see it as a guardrail.

Of course, we should investigate, have Java 9 work, and "allow others to 
use it", but only WHEN we know it works.

My only concern is to prevent unaware people from silently generating 
invalid files.
Testing the Java version and stopping if >= 9 is an option. Leaving 
-Xbootclasspath/p does the same, but is is "out of the box" :)
