Hi Nishit,

The webrev and updates to the javadoc look fine.

However, the summary of the issue does not reflect the issue and implies 
the implementation is wrong;
but it is the javadoc that need clarification.

Please change the issue summary (on both the CSR and the issue) to 
reflect the true cause, something like:

[Fmt-*] Clarify DecimalFormat description of FieldPosition use

Thanks, Roger
