      Description

      The Formatter documentation says of upper-case conversions:

          ... the result is converted to upper case according to the rules of the
          prevailing Locale.

      The concept of a "prevailing" locale isn't defined in the Formatter
      specs. I would presume "prevailing" means the one that is assocated with
      the Formatter itself, but that doesn't seem to be the actual behavior.
