This JEP [1] would be a useful addition to the platform but, in the grand
scheme of things, it's not as important as the other features that Oracle
is funding, or considering funding, for JDK 9.  I've therefore moved it
to the Proposed to Drop state.

We may reconsider this JEP for JDK 10 or a later release, especially if
new language features such as value types [2] and generics over primitive
types (JEP 218 [3]) enable a more compact and expressive API.
