Sorry if I didn't make myself clear, but I totally agree with Alan. `COMPAT` is meant for apps for their migration to JDK18, not something we would want to promote as a feature. `Charset.forName("COMPAT")` was an example we would not do, leading to my point that we should not add the proposed javac/javadoc compiler flag.
