Can you explain in more detail what those source-incompatible changes would
be? How much would they affect user code?
Should we consider a compatibility API? If we do that, then you're free to
introduce the CLDR-compatible codes later in new functions without breaking
the old ones.

I think we're past the time for this to go in 5.0. It can wait for 5.1,
provided the necessary adaptations for it to work are in place.

This one seems like a simple enough change with restricted damage. I'd
recommend doing it immediately, regardless of ICU or CLDR, provided Lars
