ES2015 aliases for ES6?

See original GitHub issue

This is similar to #5169, but in a backwards-compatible way.

Basically, an ability to specify ecmaVersion: 2015 that would behave just like ecmaVersion: 6 without deprecating the value 6. And an es2015 environment that would just be an alias for the es6 one.

I understand if you think the maintenance overhead from this isn’t worth it, but I wanted to check first 😃

I’d be interested in working on a PR, depending on how complex it ends up becoming 😃
