Why is groovy forgiving when we type wrong package names.

Groovy is only different from Java when it comes to package names in that it has not only "java.lang" as default import but also
java.io
java.net
java.math.BigDecimal
java.math.BigInteger
groovy.lang
groovy.util

If you misspell any of those, it may appear as if Groovy would be more forgiving...
