Thanks for clarifying. That sounds good.

I'll echo Martin's comment: allowing for future extensibility, even if done by
implementers, would be most ideal. Perhaps replacing the existing paragraph in
10.3.4 with something akin to:

--
Rules for the 'quotes' property provide quote styles appropriate for many
languages; these were defined from data in the current version of [CLDR].
Implementors may extend or update this list to encompass additional languages,
preferably using data gleaned from updates of the CLDR.
