What does it mean saying " aspects of any application that might need to be varied or customized in different deployment locales" in the the Sun's objectives for SCEA? Thanks in advance.

Hi,
It simply means; how should you go about writing an application that can be easily customised according to the Locale in which the application is running or by a Locale specified somewhere within the application itself. This normally applies to Text Strings and Labels, help messages and dialogs, error messages, Number/Date/Currency formats and anything else that might need to be customised according to country and language.
It may also apply to character encoding's used in the transfer of data particularly via http, but I can't be certain.
