Subject: [Fwd: Common Locale Data Repository V1.0 Beta Available!]
Although this the following repository only at Beta level, it's worth a look if just to be aware of it for the future.
It appears to unify a number of IANA , ISO standards, and Java locale properties into one repository. There's missing bits, but most of it is complete.

The OpenI18N WG of the Free Standards Group is pleased to inform you that CLDR (Common XML Locale Data Repository) V1.0 Beta snapshot is available. The CLDR repository provides application developers a consistent and uniform resource in managing the locale-sensitive data used for formatting, parsing, and analysis. It also includes the comparison charts that demonstrates the locale data differences on various platforms. New in this snapshot are initial versions of collation tailoring data.
