    But so far we haven't such arguments taking place. If there is
    an existing such list on openi18n.org, it would make sense to
    replace it with a unicode.org list given the change in hosts for CLDR
    Absent such a pre-existing list, creating it should be driven by
    the need for it, and so far all I've seen on this list are the expected
    "what exactly is CLDR" questions that should soon die down and
    meta-discussion about the need for a separate list. So far we
    haven't seen any posts about the actual contents of the CLDR.
    If the need for a separate list exists, it should soon make itself
