I think so. File path is still sensitive.

In fact, I tend to believe people usually use absolute paths for JAR files (or maybe made absolute by using a file:// URL somewhere inside JDK). Do you really see relative jar paths while testing this code change?

I like it to be public. There are quite some other such system/security properties (Ex: jdk.serialFilter) that can make use of this method.
