I think we are all agreed on type safety.
Now Jerry might suggest that it would be OK to insert additional
redundant reads, so long as it can be shown that doing so would not
violate the Java type system, or access outside the bounds of an
However, there are also type-like systems that are part of a
program's design, but not part of the JVM. And we also need to be
careful about violating these.
