You mean similar to the some of the security checks themselves, the code
being called checks the caller's classloader ?

That seems like another option - though the current initialization process
seems to be quite strong on avoiding any kind of security check during the
initialization process. I don't know if that is for functional or purely
performance reasons.

But I'll leave it to Jeroen to clarify exactly what protection is needed.
