Do not point to wikipedia.
If we must point to external links we want to point to a specification 
in the
most "official" place that exists .. one maintained by the owner of that 
Strictly that even becomes a part of the SE spec. Wikipedia is not a place
we'd ever want to say Java SE relies on for its spec ..
