Groovy: Java 7?

Sometimes I wonder why they just don't make Groovy Java 7 (or even 8). I mean, c'mon! I think it makes a lot of sense. Closures and dynamic typing that is still understandable by most Java developers. I think it would be a step in the right direction. I know I enjoy programming in Groovy more than in Java.

That makes sense. I don't think it has to be called "java" (or that it has to be groovy). But just freeze java where it is (say at 1.6 or maybe 1.7) and switch to something else, more dynamic, and move the jvm to better support it.
