      Description

      The current implementation seems to be conforming to very old Unicode spec. The nearest I could find was the one in Unicode 3.0 (
      https://www.unicode.org/versions/Unicode3.0.0/ch05.pdf) where in 5-16 "Identifiers" section (Table 5-7).
      Since then, Unicode upgraded the identifers spec with annex #31 (https://www.unicode.org/reports/tr31/). It would be desired to upgrade JDK's implementations to the latest Unicode level.
