Could a JVM for J3EE simply scan the code and if it finds anything it can't understand, pass it off to an integrated J2EE JVM? Or would that slow things down too much?

I don't know too much about Java specifically, but it seems to me like there could be some sort of solution for upwards compatibility. What about some sort of "header" of J3 files that would tell it to run in the J3 JVM vs. the J2 JVM?
