CLDR Ticket #9691(accepted spec)
LDML spec info for timeSeparator
|Reported by:||kristi||Owned by:||mark|
timeSeparator - This replaces any use of the timeSeparator pattern character in a date-time format pattern (no timeSeparator pattern character is currently defined, see note below). This allows the same time format to be used for multiple number systems when the time separator depends on the number system. For example, the time format for Arabic should be COLON when using the Latin numbering system (0, 1, 2, …), but when the Arabic numbering system is used (٠ - ١ - ٢ …), the traditional time separator in older print styles was often ARABIC COMMA.
Note: In CLDR 26 the timeSeparator pattern character was specified to be COLON. This was withdrawn in CLDR 28 due to backward compatibility issues, and no timeSeparator pattern character is currently defined. No CLDR locales are known to have a need to specify timeSeparator symbols that depend on number system; if this changes in the future a different timeSeparator pattern character will be defined.
This looks to be outdated since we are moving away from even collecting the date for this field (related ticket: http://unicode.org/cldr/trac/ticket/9411)
