What is the formal relationship between the Common Locale Data
Repository (CLDR) and International Components for Unicode (ICU)?

I ask for two reasons:

I raised a ticket on a
proposed clarificatory addition to UTS#35 'Locale Data Markup
Language', and it has just been closed as a duplicate of an ICU issue.
As no-one disputes that the problem is an issue relating to LDML, this
seems bizarre.

The ICU implementation of collation tailoring for changed ordering is
bizarre in some complicated cases. (Life can be complicated.) Should
UTS#35 be documenting what ICU does, or should Unicode be saying what
ICU should do when implementing a tailoring expressed in LDML?
