RFEs implementing JEP 170

Hi Lance,
I've been trying to identify the Java bug ids for the RFEs which
implement JEP 170 (which, from what I can tell, should be in OpenJDK 8
since milestone 6 [1]).

Unlike most JEPs, the entry for 170 does not seem to hold references to
these ids (only to the affected JSRs).

Searching the mailing archives for "jep 170", "jsr 114" & "jsr 221" also
didn't offer any greater insight, though by searching for "jdbc 4.2", I
did manage to find reference to 8005080 [2] [3].

That conversation suggests there should be other RFEs concerned with
the remaining implementation of JEP 170, but I haven't been able to
determine which those are.

Could you please tell me which RFEs implements this JEP?
It also would be good to update the document for JEP 170 [4] with there
references, and perhaps update its status to "Completed" if it has,
indeed, been completely delivered into openjdk 8?
