Add perMyriad element

Description

We have the following characters in Unicode. The first 4 can be used as symbols in a number format.

U+0025 ( % ) PERCENT SIGN
U+2030 ( ‰ ) PER MILLE SIGN

<percentSign>%</percentSign>
<perMille>‰</perMille>

That allows number formats to be used with alternate characters in other scripts, such as:

U+066A ( ٪ ) ARABIC PERCENT SIGN
U+0609 ( ؉ ) ARABIC-INDIC PER MILLE SIGN

However, we're missing a slot for:

U+2031 ( ‱ ) PER TEN THOUSAND SIGN

While not common used, they are used in finance (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Basis_point), and by having a slot for them we can show the relation to the Arabic character:

U+060A ( ؊ ) ARABIC-INDIC PER TEN THOUSAND SIGN

Thus I suggest we add an element for the remaining one.

<perMyriad>‱</perMyriad>
