Informational JEP proposed for review: 12: Incubating Language and VM Features

I've already raised my main concerns here:

and I still think that making "Incubating" features mandatory in the
Java SE specification is the wrong way to go. This proposal also
touches the JCP Java SE standardization process so I would suggest to
synchronize with the JCP EC and the corresponding Expert Groups before
implementing it in order to avoid surprises late in the
standardization process.
