I just checked jdk6, 7, 8. You're right, there is a regression in jdk 8.
In summary,
   in jdk6, the issue exists;
   in jdk7 some resources were added which I believe fixed this issue; 
(too many, I can not list it here.)
   in jdk8 the added resources were totally removed, and another 2 
resources are added:
 >         {"duplicate.keystore.domain.name","duplicate keystore domain 
name: {0}"},
 >         {"duplicate.keystore.name","duplicate keystore name: {0}"},

But currently I don't know how big the change impacts, as there are many 
resource usage under sun/security which use 

sun/security/util/Resources in jdk6, 
sun/security/util/Resources in jdk7, 
sun/security/util/Resources in jdk8,
