    BTW, if it's any consolation, Joseph Needham attempted to use a new
    convention in his _Science and Civilisation in China_ by using
    negative year numbers instead of BC/BCE. IIRC this has the side
    effect of adding a year 0 and making a one-year difference in all pre-
    AD/CE dates. Fortunately, his convention seems not to have caught on
    and CLDR is mercifully freed from the need to support it.
