This is merely a follow-through on a decision that was made as part of 
JSR-335, Lambda Expressions for the Java Language.  In 8, warnings were 
issued when such identifiers were used, that say "this will go away in 
9."  (Try it with an 8 build, you'll see.)  This is merely the 
follow-through to that decision (since we couldn't do it all in one go 
in 8.)
