There are two mechanisms in AWT to synchronously execute code on EDT from the toolkit thread, but keep the toolkit thread alive (running nested event loop):

sun.awt.datatransfer.ToolkitThreadBlockedHandler - cross-platform interface used in DnD

LWCToolkit.invokeAndWait() - Mac OS X method(s) used in CAccessibility and several other places

These APIs should be either merged, or one rewritten using another.
