// EXPERIMENTAL flags are in support of features that may not be
// an officially supported part of a product, but may be available
// for experimenting with. They could, for example, be performance
// features that may not have undergone full or rigorous QA, but which may
// help performance in some cases and released for experimentation
// by the community of users and developers. This flag also allows one to
// be able to build a fully supported product that nonetheless also
// ships with some unsupported, lightly tested, experimental features.
// Refer to the documentation of any products using this code for details
// on support and fitness for production.
// Like the UnlockDiagnosticVMOptions flag above, there is a corresponding
// UnlockExperimentalVMOptions flag, which allows the control and
// modification of the experimental flags.
// Nota bene: neither diagnostic nor experimental options should be used casually,
// and they are not supported on production loads, except under explicit
// direction from support engineers.
// Refer to the documentation of any products using this code for details.
// MANAGEABLE flags are writeable external product flags.
// They are dynamically writeable through the JDK management interface
