Swing is a single-threaded subsystem and therefore should be mostly immune -
except at the boundaries, where it interacts with the multi-threaded world,
and in javax.swing.text.AbstractDocument, where it explicitly admits
asynchronous changes. [Aside: I'd give worlds to know just how the
notifications from these changes are communicated to the rest of the
single-threaded subsystem in a thread-safe way -- without first relaying
these notifications to Swing's input-event thread.]
When you say that accesses to the static, non-volatile defaultStyles and
defaultParser are not correctly synchronized, I assume you've concluded that
these accesses can result from asynchronous changes to the underlying

Could get a bit crowded on the bug parade if they all go individually.

Wasn't the phrase "like shooting fish in a barrel"?
Only this afternoon I spotted crimes committed on javax.swing.text.html.HTMLEditorKit.defaultStyles and defaultParser.
