A few random comments that may be useful

   - A relatively new project, icu4x - aims to provide similar features to
   ICU while rethinking some of the fundamental design decisions (for example,
   ICU has a UTF16-first interface, which isn't optimal)
   - Currency/Number/Date/Time formatting in ICU/Unicode/CLDR are
   significantly different from what std::locale can offer, and would deserve
   further consideration in that is is not "already provided by chrono"
   - In addition to ICU, ecma402 is worth considering -
   https://tc39.es/ecma402/ and

   - Case mapping seems to be missing from the document, and may be worth
   - A lot of algorithms (casing, clusterization) have both locale
   dependant, and locale independent algorithms
   - A locale identifier object is certainly a prerequisite for further
   unicode locale work -
