Asking for a name change in sun.security.provider.certpath.BasicChecker

This class has a method called verifyTimestamp() but it's actually about 
the validity period fields in a certificate. I found it quite misleading 
because whenever I see timestamp I think of TSA and RFC 3161.

Are you OK with changing all occurrences of "timestamp" to "validity"? 
This includes the title in the exception message.

Thanks
Max
