Legacy Issue Number: 1256
Summary: p.6.68: It is a bit awkward that boxed values of "complex" types map
all to the same type (i.e., as for typedefs, the value"s name appears
only in holder/helper classes), and that each boxed value of "basic" type
maps to its individual class. Instead, boxed values of basic types
could map to the corresponding java.lang.* class, e.g.
java.lang.Integer, java.lang.Short, etc. An issue with this approach
is that java.lang.Short and java.lang.Byte are not defined in JDK
1.0.2. I doubt however this JDK is still much in use; for its users,
short and octet could optionally map to e.g. CORBA.ShortValue and
CORBA.ByteValue (inspired from CORBA::StringValue).
