    So, if I understand correctly. A CLDR Locale defines at least one
    numberFormat (decimal, scientific, whatever). It may choose to
    actually define a family of formats (long, medium, etc). And in that
    case, one *may* find a default indicating which is to be used. The
    only case I find in the current main files is the bz_DT which adds a
    longScientificFormat, and then indicates that this is to be the
    default, rather than whatever is inherited as the default definition.

    Have I interpreted this correctly?
