Consider (just for jdk development purposes) internally turning this into
an error, so that all such warnings are caught before release.  I think
such a thing is useful enough that you could have a system property or
javac flag to turn this into an error.  openjdk development would not be
the only team making use of that, e.g. to find missing -bootclasspath flags.
