[Windows] Editor uses OS locale settings (i.e. commas instead of dots in float inspector fields) with Experimental .NET 4.6



Setting the Project to use the new Experimental .NET 4.6 support apparently results in the Editor using the OS's Locale for formatting. In case of a non-English Locale this results in a mixed English/non-English Editor experience, specifically noticeable when commas are used for decimal separation.

Steps to reproduce:
1. [Change Locale setting to non-English]
a) Open Start menu and type Region
b) In an opened window select Formats tab
c) Select any non-English format, that uses commas instead of dots for decimal separation (for example, German (Germany))
d) Apply, close the window
2. Open attached project "Locale"
3. Open scene "test" and select "RandomObject" from Hierarchy
4. Take a look at Component "Number Test"

Expected behavior: for float number "Random float" dots are used for decimal separation.
Actual behavior: for float number "Random float" commas are used for decimal separation.

Reproduced with: 2017.2.0b2, 2017.1.0f3.
Not reproduced with: 5.6 (no Experimental .NET 4.6 feature).

    Still broken in 2018.4.0f1 windows standalone runtime.
    My app has an editor and Input Fields with decimal places are broken using float.parse in Germany and most likely other locales that use comma instead of decimal.
    Will this be back ported from 2019?

    Unity 2018.3.12f1: it's still there and it makes impossibile to build for Android specifying a non-integer "Up to:" value for max aspect ratio

    Also found in 2018.2.20f1 and 2018.3.0f1
    In case you have troubles with parsing floats with commas, a work around is forcing your float into 'Invariant' which is English formatting (dot):
    float number = float.Parse("5,0", CultureInfo.InvariantCulture.NumberFormat);

    А really annoying issue also breaks hotkeys for Russian locale, so I can't save or copy/paste anything with hotkeys in the editor when Russian locale is active. After switching to English, the editor needs some time (and some random actions, I can't determine what actions exactly) to make the hotkeys work.
