IIRC, we've started using japicm here and there. Each component can decide.
But yes, Clirr looks pretty dead.

The changes are not "necessary" that for sure and we do get Clirr warnings:

Value of field ISO_8859_1 is no longer a compile-time constant
Value of field US_ASCII is no longer a compile-time constant
Value of field UTF_16 is no longer a compile-time constant
Value of field UTF_16BE is no longer a compile-time constant
Value of field UTF_16LE is no longer a compile-time constant
Value of field UTF_8 is no longer a compile-time constant

It's source compatible. What is the issue at runtime that could hurt users?

I do not think we plan on making Java 9 a requirement for any current
project.
