I'll leave it to Joe Wang to comment on the test but just to mention 
that jdk9/dev is probably a better forest to aim for because that is 
where the XML (and its tests) usually go.  Also I wonder if it might be 
better to put it in the same directory as the test that Joe pushed with 
the change?

If you are getting approval to push to jdk8u-dev and jdk7u-dev then it 
might be better to request a backport of Joe's change at the same time.
