8004371: (props) Properties.loadFromXML needs small footprint XML parser as fallback when JAXP is not present

I've refreshed the webrev here to take in another change from Joe to the 
root element handling in PropertiesDefaultHandler.


I'd like to get this into jdk8/tl in the next few days if possible.

On tests on then I've expanded LoadAndStoreXML to include a directory of 
invalid XML documents (those that should cause 
InvalidProperitesFormatException to be thrown) so that improves the test 
coverage a bit. Joe has several other tests in the works so I've 
suggested to him that he does a follow-up change in the coming weeks 
with those tests.
