    Description

      Class java.awt.HeadlessException introduced in 1.4 has basically no specification:

      http://docs.oracle.com/javase/6/docs/api/java/awt/HeadlessException.html
      http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/api/java/awt/HeadlessException.html
      http://download.java.net/jdk8/docs/api/java/awt/HeadlessException.html

      Having no specification prevents JCK from writing correct and spec-based conformance tests as behavior is tricky in corner cases - see JCK-7146215
