    You display little real knowledge of the CLDR project or the
    relationship between the Unicode Standard and ISO/IEC 10646. Your
    statement about ISO 15924 happens to be accurate (but a broken watch is
    correct twice a day).

    Please do not pretend to be an authority about these subjects.
