Hi folks,

Here is a suggestion of the text for BP 3, if we were to try and add in 
the information about locale-neutral formats. Besides changing the title 
and subtitle, I changed the very beginning of the Why paragraph to use 
the word "information" instead of "parameters". I removed the phrase 
suggesting that people use CLDR to localize data, as that goes against 
the idea of being locale neutral. I added a new paragraph just before 
EXAMPLE 3. I also added a locale-neutral bit to the example and a test 
for locale neutrality. This version also has the commit for the language 

You can see the result at
