I agree. I enjoyed reading both of your detailed discussions.

ICU is "International Components for Unicode"

ICU provides a very thorough API for Unicode and globalization.

CLDR is "Unicode Common Locale Data Repository"

CLDR provides the data that is used by ICU implementations.

So in any given program you would link against the ICU library and
the manipulations you make are driven by the data from CLDR.

The goal with glibc locale data is to attempt to harmonize with CLDR
such that applications using ICU APIs and glibc APIs get as close to
the same results as possible.

It does users a disservice if Java and C are arbitrarily different
in this regard across the two most commonly used APIs for localization.
