Will it eventually be possible to create a runtime that has the CLDR 
locale data but does not have the legacy JRE locale data? I'm assuming 
the CLDR does not have any dependences on the classes in the JRE locale 

My motive for the question is the naming because the changes mean we 
have jdk.localedata and jdk.localedata.cldr, an arrangement that 
suggests that the CLDR locale data augments the jdk.localedata module. 
It may be that we need to choose more suitable names for these two 
modules and this will impact the source layout.
