Support some locale elements from underlying platforms. For example, if user preference of date formats specifies Japanese calendar, then Java picks up that information and uses Japanese calendars.

Run the new test developed for JEP 127 with latest JPRT build and JDK8 b62.

SUGGESTED FIX http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk8/tl/jdk/rev/131a683a2ce0

EVALUATION Fix in progress with 6336885.

EVALUATION Pluggable Locale SPI for user preference locale information, which may not match with JRE's locale data: eg. ja_JP locale with currency symbol = $ - Override some of the JRE's default locale information - Dynamic change by Listener - Optionally use of the control panel to change the locale?
