It depends. If implementations parse this as ISO date-time, it would
still work. But I guess that they may be many implementations that can
understand only one format (the one from original JEP). Maybe it would
be a good idea to ask people on jdev how would their implementations
react to JEP-0082 format used in old JEPs.
