Additional French Time Patterns ?

As Steven said, you may want to submit a CLDR ticket for changing the
French time format patterns.

I wonder a little: If the form "12 h 54" is truly more common, why would
the contributing organizations and survey tool contributors not have
adopted that already? But I have personally no idea what is common in
French, so will leave it to others.

Same as in German, and I am sure in many other languages. Where the 24-hour
format is written exclusively, the am/pm strings are somewhat "made up".
CLDR needs them in case someone forces 12-hour format.
