    Has anyone actually suggested this? In my opinion, non-standardised
    proprietary names are even worse than the official but sometimes
    inaccurate names. What we need is a list which is both correct (or at
    least correctible when errors are found!) and standardised. And I accept
    that CLDR rather than Unicode proper may be the best place to go for this.
