That's my impression too. I'm not saying that someone should take the
blame or responsibility, but shouldn't this wrong transformation be
un-done in a disciplined manner? If that's impossible, then a clear
message should be sent to anyone involved to check the data on quotation
marks, with the note that the data in 1.3 is probably wrong for most

In the development process, the Survey Tool might be more suitable, but
CLDR 1.3 is what the Unicode Consortium has announced as the Latest
Release, and the CLDR main page http://www.unicode.org/cldr/ does not
even seem to mention the Survey Tool in any prominent manner.
Personally, I find the Survey Tool presentation style rather hard to
read. Anyway, it's apparently not meant for simple quick checking of
what the _current_ _official_ locale data is.
