Have you guys looked at the I18N facilities of the Dojo JavaScript
framework? [1] Seems like there is some overlap with your API, and Dojo is
already well established in the field. Maybe there are some opportunities to
reuse and/or coordinate, to avoid duplicate APIs.

The Dojo formatting modules cover dates, numbers, and currencies in a
locale-specific manner, and are based on the CLDR (nice!). [2]

Dojo has the concept of locale [3], but looks like it doesn't support
locale-specific collation out of the box, and I don't know if you can plug
in your own comparison (i.e. an implementation of the UCA). Maybe someone
who knows more can confirm or deny.

Best regards,
