Proposal: Newer version-string scheme for the Java SE Platform and the JDK

The proposed scheme fits well with related appearances of the 
feature/major version number, such as the argument for the 
-source/-target/--release options for javac and javadoc.

I would also expect javac to follow the guidelines listed in the 
"Launcher" section.
