That is a very good point; it may address the speed and memory issues. It is not a very active project though; last release was in January 2010. But my argument as to "proprietariness" remains similar: the official JVM is proprietary and heavily patented by lawsuit-happy Oracle, which has sued other implementors (Google). If I had to take the decision to port to the JVM I would not take it lightly.
