I changed it nevertheless. It would be remiss to presume readers need be

Anyway, I addressed this and your other concerns in a new webrev.

  JIRA:   https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8221477
  Webrev: http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~adinn/8221477/webrev.02

Input from a second reviewer would be welcome ...
