        Description

        It is anticipated that the announcement of the name of the new era may not be ready for the last JDK update before the beginning of the new era (May 1st, 2019).
        In order to make it a smooth transition, implement the new era with a placeholder name "NewEra" (default) and 新元号 (in Japanese) (now changed to 元号 see JDK-8207152), so that the "year of era" value should be correctly calculated. The placeholder should be replaced with the genuine name after it is announced (with JDK-8174268)

        This enhancement does not include the possible additional character for the new era, supposedly be assigned to U+32FF, that would need to wait till possibly Unicode 12.1 (https://www.unicode.org/L2/L2018/18220-u121planning.txt)
