Well, "Unicode" should not be "saying" what anybody should do here.

UTS #35 is owned by the CLDR-TC, not the UTC or the Unicode Consortium
as a whole.

The discussion of the relationship between CLDR and ICU presumably
belongs on the cldr-users list, rather than the unicode list, except insofar
as an issue raised for tailoring of collation in LDML and/or in the
ICU implementation reflects back on something which would need
changing or clarifying in UTS #10.
