Well, hmm... I guess you could argue that for things like no bare pointers
and non-local gotos.
The reason that regular/local gotos aren't in the Java *language* are
because they are seen as evil (from a "software engineering" perspective).
Gotos have to be in the Java Virtual Machine or it would be a bit hard to
get anything done. :-)
In terms of JVM security, there's e.g., the "bytecode verifier" which
enforces various rules on the loading of bytecodes into the JVM
