This is an implementation for the `JEP 400: UTF-8 by Default`. The gist of the changes is `Charset.defaultCharset()` returning `UTF-8` and `file.encoding` system property being added in the spec, but another notable modification is in `java.io.PrintStream` where it continues to use the `Console` encoding as the default charset instead of `UTF-8`. Other changes are mostly clarification of the term "default charset" and their links. Corresponding CSR has also been drafted.
