LocaleServiceProvider SPIs are already modified to load implementations 
from the classpath. Please take a look at the modified spec [1].

As to the said RBControlProvider, it was unfortunate that it was an 
interface, not an abstract class, so it wasn't possible to check the 
appropriate permission on the construction of instances. Since we could 
not find any implementations (at the time of investigation, including 
the original requester), we decided to deprecate the SPI.
