Would you say, then, that Marcel's statements:

"Now that CLDR is sorting out how to improve keyboard layouts, hopefully 
something falls off to replace the *legacy* US-Intl."


"We can only hope that now, CLDR is thoroughly re-engineering the way 
international or otherwise extended keyboards are mapped."

reflect the situation accurately?

Nothing in the PRI #367 blog post or background document communicated to 
me that CLDR was going to try to influence vendors to retire these 
keyboard layouts and replace them with those. I thought it was just 
about providing a richer CLDR format and syntax to better "support 
keyboard layouts from all major providers." Please point me to the part 
I missed.
