There are many more important areas than need fixing before "all property files become XML" etc:


- clone() needs to work with inner classes;
- clone() needs to work with final fields;
- clone() needs to be a public method of Clonable;
- the language needs built-in typesafe enum support;
- the language needs support for generic types (List<int>));
- it should be decided once and for all whether final fields could be changed via reflection or not;
- Externalizable should work with final fields;
- it should be decided once and for all whether the current or the thread context classloader is used for implicit dynamic resource loading;
- java.net.URL API needs cleaning up;
- custom URL schemes need better support;
