I will do that. But I thought a bit of debate and input from various
people may help...

Well, « common » may depend on what you look at. It is certainly the way
style guides generally recommend formatting hours.
Now the "hh:mm" format is creeping at more and more places because of
computers and electronic devices imposing this format, but I thought
CLDR was about improving the situation born out of a single format being
imposed to all...
I was trying to find a compromise between the « technical » American
notation (":") and a traditional notation (with "h"). Compromise because
we are forced to specify defaults for all usages.

Which contributing organizations really worry about French short time
If you look at ISO 8859-1, the presence of French speaking experts did
not preclude the omission of « Œ», « œ » and « Ÿ »... Hence ISO 8859-15.
