I'm pretty sure the check *cannot* be circumvented by a user-defined
class loader. It may not do the check itself, but that only means it can
load a class in another package (that happens to have the same name).
For it to load bootstrap classes, it will need to delegate to the system
class loader and that's the one doing the checking.
