[OpenJDK 2D-Dev] Review Request for JDK-7107905: ColorModel subclasses are missing hashCode() or equals() or both methods

Sounds like we should at least try to get the tests updated so they only 
test what the spec. says.
Although it does indicate that there is at least a chance that 
application code might also fail due to similar assumptions.
Does #1 not fail with the previous iteration of this change too ?
