Use of JDK 8 with Xamarin Android

Our systems administrator requires us to remove JDK 7 for security reasons.

I just tested with JDK 8 and our (quite large) Xamarin Android app builds and runs fine with JDK 8.

Are there any problems we can expect when using JDK 8?

If there are no problems, would it be possible for the Xamarin guys to update the recommendation "It is also important that v1.7 of the Java JDK is installed" at
