Probably would be beneficial. I can file an issue for it in the Java bug
tracker. But there may be compatibility issues with making a change like
that, too.

Well, they could have simply introduced Driver2 extends Driver for the new
methods, and checked instanceof Driver2 before calling them. Fully
compatible, simple, no need 
for reflection (well technically instanceof + cast are reflective, but no
java.lang.reflect.*). Too late.
