What about using allkeys.txt from the UCA database? Is that
equivalent to the root locale in CLDR, as far as equivalence for
searching is concerned? If not, how do these two differ? (I've read,
but it left me not sure whether what it describes affects search
matches when secondary weights are ignored.)

Also, what is the consensus here about using UCA's decomps.txt for
folding characters when ignoring secondary and tertiary weights?
