Examples for Scottish Gaelic plurals are wrong

http://www.unicode.org/cldr/charts/latest/supplemental/language_plural_rules.html#gd currently has
1 chaora bhàin
1.0 chaora bhàin
2 caora bàn
2.0 caora bàn
3 chaora bhàn
3.0 chaora bhàn
20 caoraich bhàna
0.9 caoraich bhàna

These are *totally* wrong and look like someone hit Google Translate. First off, counting (only) a feminine noun is a bad choice because feminine nouns impact the adjective in different ways from masculine nouns. At the very least, 2 nouns need to be given as examples. The correct examples should be (adding taigh 'house' as an example of a masculine noun):

1 chaora bhàn, 1 taigh bàn
1.0 chaora bhàn, 1 taigh bàn
2 chaora bhàn, 2 thaigh bàn
2.0 chaora bhàn, 2 thaigh bàn
3 caoraich bàn, 3 taighean bàna
3.0 caoraich bàn, 3.0 taighean bàna
20 caora bàn, 20 taigh bàn
0.9 caora bàn, 0.9 taigh bàn

Someone should also check who committed these examples and whether someome is just making these up.
