Title: Proposals for EU, FI, SE and NO Cultural Registration

Comments regarding the registration in: "Pan-European language-independent registration"
In Clause 4: Monetary formatting it says:
"The name of the currency is "Euro", subdivided into 100 "cents" (with plural "s")."
Even if it also says: "This default is for general use, and not applicable
for use in value documents." it should, in our opinion, follow the rules given
in the EU document "Interinstitutional style guide". You can find this
document on http://eur-op.eu.int/code/en/en-000500.htm. Part 3 "Conventions
common to all languages" in Clause 7.3 "Currencies and codes" states the
"The euro is divided into 100 cent. In English the terms 'euro' and 'cent'
are invariable (no plural 's')"
Comments regarding the registration for MES 2 in:
MES 2 is specified in CWA 13873 and that is the only specification which
should be valid. The specified characters in the registration are not
exactly the same as in the CWA. It should be changed to be exactly the same
as in CWA 13873.
The repertoire map should use the Uxxxx identifiers in consistence with
ISO/IEC 10646 instead of the specified mnemonics.
We also think that this part preferably should have a title and not only
just start with the specification.

confusing if a locale is submitted by a body or person other than by the NB
