Why should it be boot? Even in Java8 this causes troubles and eg one can
not use Nashorn because its security checks are violated so one has to
launch with ext as the classloader hierarchy.

Felix for example does use the extension classloader as the default and
that's what a default java developer would expect as well (ok well he
would expect the app-classloader but he is not writing applications but
bundles I think ext would be the expected classloader at least)
