What CLDR does have is provision for some particular cases: for the use of
different forms of months, depending on context: either stand-alone ("July")
or within formats ("July 1, 1942"); for the use of currency formats that
change according to the value of the number (see the formats for INR); and
for exceptional titlecasing of language display names.
It would be extremely complex to describe all the mechanisms used for
forming arbitrary noun plurals in any particular language; and that does not
speak to more complex declinations of nouns or adjectives. What is it
exactly that you are looking for -- can you give an example?
