IIRC that we decided on the priorities. See

Do you want to include every jar in a "generic" classpath?

Your proposal only addresses runtime environments, not build
dependencies, and how they should configured.  We discussed that in
Oldenburg (you included).  You may want as well look at FC how the
classpath is configured for specific applications.

Application specific blacklists for jre's/sdk's are missing, else
you'll get at least one RC report for each application.
