CLDR Ticket #9995(closed dtd: wontfix)
Consider using <fieldLength type="short"> instead of e.g. year, year-short, year-narrow
|Reported by:||pedberg||Owned by:||anybody|
Currently the structure for <fields> is flat, and mixes the various field types (era, year, quarter, month, etc.) with their length (year, year-short, year-narrow). We should consider moving this to a hierarchical structure similar to other elements with length variants such as units; i.e., under <fields> we have fieldLength with types long, short, narrow then under that we would have the <field> elements with types for era, year, month etc.
This may have impact on current data consumers so we would need to conduct a public review first.
