From the CSR review:

> No, AFAIK, we don't have any javadoc cocerning these properties. I suppose it's OK because they control platform specific window properties and rich client applications heavily depend on them. Without such properties java client applications use some hacks with JNA library to change native peers.

I do not understand this as a justification for a lack of documentation.

What is it about rich client applications that makes it OK for application developers to have to view internal JDK source code to find the property names or even to know which properties are supported?

In the old days (when Apple owned this code), they had a tech report that documented the properties.
Something is needed to replace that (long gone and now incomplete) tech report.
