    It would appear that in the past some mechanical transformation has been
    performed under somewhat erroneous assumptions. Incidentally, using CLDR
    1.3 tables - when one could see with the Survey Tool what has been
    proposed and possible already accepted for a given locale in CLDR 1.4 -
    doesn't sound reasonable to me.
