In CLDR team discussion today we settled on a more obvious, less "ugly"
naming convention, using a two-part type that turns into two language

In CLDR data:
    <collation type="private-kana">

    <collation type="standard">
        <import source="ja" type="private-kana">

which in ICU would turn into
    [import ja-u-co-private-kana]

Multi-part keyword values are already used for ca (calendar type e.g.
islamic-tbla), kr (script reodering), vt (deprecated variableTop) and maybe

Thanks for the feedback!
