Shouldnt't JSRs 277/294 (modules) fix that? I suppose that a lot of 
package-private implementation artifacts could be promoted to 
module-private, enabling higher code sharing across java.util and its 
many subpackages and also across the entire Java SE APIs. And 
differently from closures, these JSRs are something we can rely on, for 
Java 7.
