Requesting approval to push to 8u. This is one of the changes proposed 
for the upcoming Java SE 8 Maintenance Review. This change is a 
clarification to the Java Security Standard Algorithm Names 
specification to allow implementations to support names that are defined 
in later revisions. The change is low risk (docs only). The patch has 
already been applied to JDK 12 and is the same for 11u and 8u. The CCC 
and CSR has already been approved for 8, 11 and 12.

issue: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8215318

The public code review thread for the JDK 12 patch is at: 

Note that this specification is currently in a closed repository, but we 
are requesting a public push approval since the changes will be publicly 
documented in the Java SE 8 Maintenance Review.
