    PRI #178 Collation Rules for Non-Latin Scripts in Unicode CLDR

    In Unicode CLDR 1.9 and earlier versions, the collation order for given
    languages changes the order of characters within a script, but doesn't
    change the order of scripts. In Unicode CLDR 2.0 and later versions, there
    is the capability to customize the collation order by re-ordering one or
    more scripts with respect to other scripts. The proposal addressed by this
    Public Review Issue is to change the customized collation order for certain
    languages in the Unicode CLDR data tables.
