Request for prompt resolution of a compliance-related bug

I'd like to draw attention to JDK-8192936 [1] that describes a difference 
between the spec and recent changes to the reference implementation.  The 
bug is labelled as 'conformance' and is targeted to fix version 11, so I 
am content that it will not get overlooked before the project is 
finalized.  That said, it would be helpful to have an early decision about 
whether the spec or RI will be changed to resolve the difference. If the 
spec is to be changed it will need some time for discussion within the 
experts group, and implementers other than OpenJDK will likely have work 
to do to become compliant once again.
