That’s completely OK, I appreciate any feedback ! Basically the JSR also
originally was designed in a mixed scope, where only the core part was
targeted for inclusion into JDK 9. All other parts with their service like
APIs were clearly out of scope for platform scope.
Nevertheless I had a great time with Stephen Colebourne, which is also in the
EG, and we have talked for a couple of hours during JavaOne and also did the
BOF together. As a consequence, we agreed to drastically reduce the API (4
interfaces, one exception class left, 1 spi interface). I also have moved all
other parts (conversion, formatting, regions, extensions etc) to the
org.javamoney repository on GitHub and also adapted the spec accordingly. So
I assume, this feedback is not coming from Stephen Colebourne, since we are
in contact, and might be reflecting the last early draft review, which I
agree, would have a problem to be included in that way into the JDK.
Perhaps the current state of the spec may help out to make things clearer:

Apologies for contacting you out of the blue but I received some feedback
from folks who were involved in getting JSR 310 (date and time) into Java 8.
They mentioned that early versions of the Currency JSR would likely run into
the same technical design / architecture roadblocks as they did.
It might be worth having a quick call with Stephen Colebourne or Richard
Warburton to exchange some information on this. Let me know if you don't
have their contact details and I'll get you introduced.
