    You are saying that SB11 does not apply on <lower lower aterm close lf
    ext ? upper lower lower> to use your example (with ? being the position

    I just don't see how that can be inferred from the text. The rules in
    6.2 that describe the insertion of "(Extend|Format)*" do not say "insert
    only in some cases and not in others".

    On the other hand, looking at the rules in the CLDR (for root), I see
    that the variables Sep, CR and LF are not extended with $FE* like all
    the others. Hence my sudden doubt.
