The constants are for native methods, which differ between macOS and Windows. Thus I thought it would be clearer to align the name with Windows' constants.

Could be better by making them as enums, but there are other locations similarly using ints. I added extra comments to explain those ints for better readability.

Could be, but it is enough to test one locale to demonstrate platform settings are used for minimal days in first week. Each test case name can be found in the command line to the java launcher which is logged in the .jtr file.
