I don't think it's any standard mapping at all.

Sorry, I don't use the UCD XML files, and it's been a while since I looked

(For my use for ICU, they were missing some things, I guess including these
pieces, and they were including things I didn't need. So I kept improving
my .txt file parser instead. YMMV)
