This might lead to worse API choices as it constraints us to not use new Java 8 features.

As I've suggested earlier, it might make sense to start from working on JAX-RS 2.1 features that can still run with JDK 1.7 - simply to make the adoption of 2.1 faster for the existing JDK 1.7 users and get the features depending on Java 8 language features in the end/second half of the 2.1 development life-cycle. Not sure how realistic it is though
