It was observed on the nio-discuss mailing list that Path's createFile, createDirectory, createSymbolicLink ... don't make it clear if they create missing parent directories. They don't of course, but this should be made clearer so that readers of the javadoc are in no doubt.

EVALUATION The updates, tracked by 7006126, will address this.

EVALUATION Yes, we'll make this clearer.
