The SC JEP is still in draft and is a bit out of date. We have updates 
to it coming very soon that will improve the story and also align it 
with the API that is in the repo and EA builds.  The rename was several 
months ago. The only API change in the latest EA build is that the API 
for extent-locals has been renamed from ScopeLocal to ExtentLocal. There 
is a big makeover to that JEP in progress and I'm sure Andrew Haley will 
send mail here once that is done.

The motivation for refreshing the EA downloads wasn't either of these 
APIs but rather to ensure that the latest docs for the tooling support 
are online. There are significant updates used by debuggers and other 
tools. It's important that the docs for these interfaces are correct for 
the IDEs, debuggers, and others that are testing and doing work in 
preparation for JEP 425.
