      Description

        Now that the CLDR locale data being the default one, the value name "JRE" for the system property "java.locale.providers" is ambiguous. In JDK9, introducing a new locale data name "COMPAT" which is a synonym to "JRE" should be introduced, and the existing "JRE" should be marked as deprecated, then eventually removed in JDK10.
