Looks good to me. Thanks for cleaning this up!

The counters() method is only used as a private accessor. Do you want to 
move that to the private section as part of this cleanup? Alternatively 
it could be removed and the only use of it in 
PSMarkSweep::invoke_no_policy() could access the instance variable 
_counters directly.

I can sponsor the fix.
