On small bit of trivia to add to the discussion: 

org.omg.CORBA.IntHolder and the other mutable numeric holder classes
do not extend Number either. Of course, I'm not claiming they were
designed well (it defines public int value field, after all!).
Note also that the name is IntHolder and not IntegerHolder,
another departure from Integer/AtomiInteger
