The JEP is just currently in the "proposed to target" state. The PR with 
the changes is work-in-progress so I guess Geertjan must have grabbed 
the PR and did some testing. Early testing is good and well constructed 
bug reports are always welcome. In this case, there seems to be a fix to 
Eclipse Equinox in the works [1] as it didn't support the "allow" and 
"disallow" values that were added in JDK 12. There is an argument that 
the placeholder values ("default", "allow", ..) should be dropped at 
startup and before user code executes as there may be code reading the 
value of (as Equinox seems to be doing). So that 
may be resolved soon.
