There are 827 files in this patch. Phil is right that adding SW at the class level is introducing technical debt but if addressing that requires refactoring and re-testing of AWT or font code then it would be better to have someone from that area working on. Is there any reason why this can't be going on now on awt-dev/2d-dev and integrated immediately after JEP 411? I don't think we should put Max through the wringer here as there are too many areas to cover.
