Here they are:

8016743: java.text.MessageFormat does not support java.time.* types
8016742: JAXB does not support java.time.* types

Note that JAXB is maintained in an upstream project (they periodically 
do source drops into OpenJDK). I don't know if support for java.time 
requires API changes or not but just to mention that JAXB is tied to a 
standalone JSR and I think they the requirement to be able to drop-in 
into jdk7 builds.
