Duration Lists?

 http://cldr.unicode.org/translation/lists does not mention Regular vs Duration/Unit
 PathHeader also has //ldml/listPatterns/listPattern/listPatternPart[@type="%A"] ; Misc ; Displaying Lists ; Regular Lists ; &listOrder($1)  - but “Regular Lists” doesn’t appear as such in the spec.  

Should “Regular Lists” be renamed to “Standard Lists” or “Other Lists” ? 

Pending discussion of the other bullet items below.

So the type “unit-short” is named “Short Duration List”.

What is this list and what is it for? It’s not documented.

I’m at TC39. The question is how CLDR lists map to the following four use cases:

• separating numbers:   “4, 5, 6” or “4;5;6"
• separating units: “5months 3days” or “5 lb 8 oz”
• separating “regular” things - “Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday”
• separating “regular" in short form - “Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday”
