Support for ECParameters with explicit (not named) parameter spec

Hello,

currently sun.security.util.ECParameters.engineInit(byte[]) is limited to 
parse named curves. A commented block outlining parsing of explicit 
parameters is included below throwing "only named ECParameters supported". 
That comment block seems to be unchanged from at least jdk6 up until 
jdk10.

Is there any Plan to implement this at some time? Since I am needing to 
implement it anyway, how could I provide that change?

Kind Regards,

Max Fichtelmann
