We are working in this area; we are looking to replace the
ConnectionFactory with another mechanism (ConnectionBuilder) which doesn't
have this problem. The ConnectionFactory will still exist, however,
(though deprecated) and
this problem will be fixed therein. I have raised Bug 24597 to track it.
(You should see it in the next release).
Thank you for spotting this.
