      Description

        IntlTest and CollatorTest are testing classes which are extended by tests in text/, util/Locale, util/TimeZone, and util/Calendar. The testing frameworks are quite old and have caused issues such as: variation between OS, hiding stack trace, and causing tests to spuriously pass (BigDecimalParse).

        The testing base classes should be removed as there are modern alternatives such as JUnit. All the tests extending IntlTest and CollatorTest should be converted as well.
