This had been my concern as well, but then I found this:

Looks like you added this check as part of the fix for http://java.net/jira/browse/MACOSX_PORT-774
Which means that this check is only useful for OS X, and therefore it's OK to replace it with another.

The problem here is that for headless mode  "java.awt.graphicsenv" system property should be CGraphicsEnvironment because the way GraphicsEnvironment.createGE() method works: it first instantiates GraphicsEnvironment instance and then wraps it with HeadlessGraphicsEnvironment if in headless mode. This means twe can't use java.awt.graphicsenv property to determine whether we are in headless mode or not. So, I've replaced it with a toolkit check: if it's HToolkit, then we are in headless.
