Simple examples that come right away into my mind:
- JMX part of JDK 1.5, so there would be no need for 3rd party JMX libs => less things
to maintain.
- annotations:
     - simplified testing
     - @NotNull annotations for better code quality:

          or
         http://www.jetbrains.com/idea/docs/NullableHowTo.pdf

just to mention a few.

Ahmed.
