supplemental timedata "preferred" doesn't match "allowed" priority order.
|Reported by:||shawn||Owned by:||anybody|
There are a lot of entries in the timedata that aren't consistent.
<hours preferred="H" allowed="hB H" regions="CD"/>
<hours preferred="H" allowed="hB hb h H" regions="KE MM TZ UG"/>
TR35 says "There is a single preferred value, and multiple allowed values." and "The allowed values are in preference order"
So, the first allowed value in preference order should also reasonably be the preferred value. I suppose that if one of the "b" values is preferred and the preferred value wants to filter those out, then it could vary, but still one would expect 12/24 hour consistency.
The above examples seem inconsistent to me. These regions apparently prefer the 24 hour clock, however they also prefer a 12 hour clock with pay period (6 at night).
