Parsers for the UnicodeSet notation?

I would like to work with the exemplarCharacters data in the CLDR. That
uses the UnicodeSet notation. Is there somewhere a parser for that
notation, that would return me just the list of characters in the set?
Something a bit like the UnicodeSet utility at
<>, but for use in

I suspect that the exemplarCharacters use a restricted form of the
UnicodeSet notation (e.g. do not use property values). Is that correct,
and if so, what's the subset?

Incidentally, I copy/pasted the punctuation exemplar characters for
he.xml into the utility, and it reported that the set contains 8,130
code points, including the ascii letters. Somehow, that seems incorrect.
What did I do wrong?
