The UCA test file is only for the DUCET, corresponding to what we call the
"root locale". Actually, since CLDR tailors the default sort order, and ICU
implements that, CLDR has modified versions of those test files:

The ICU test file has a number of test cases for various locales, as
indicated in the test data. They assume CLDR collation data. More often, I
tried to make minimal assumption about the collation data, and copied
relevant parts of rules into the test data -- so some of the test cases
require a from-rules builder. As a result, this file might be too specific
for other implementations.
