What if someone wants to use ISO Language Code "he" without making
changes to variant names? The current code might be:
Locale locale = new Locale("iw", "IL", "MyVariant");
Then, the user might want to change this one to:
Locale locale = new Locale.Builder().setLanguage("he")....setVariant("MyVariant").create();
But if the new one throws an exception, the user needs to stay with "iw".
I think we need to have a separate variant to allow users to migrate
from the constructor to the Locale.Builder without changing other things.
