#1596 — Dual OctalIntegerLiteral

Note, that OctalIntegerLiteral is defined twice, once for 0o777 and once in appendix B using 0777.

I suggest renaming the old OctalIntegerLiteral to either ImplicitOctalIntegerLiteral or LegacyOctalIntegerLiteral.

This became obvious due to:

In "7.8.3 Numeric Literals"

"A conforming implementation, when processing strict mode code (see 10.1.1), must not extend the syntax of NumericLiteral to include OctalIntegerLiteral as described in B.1.1."
