I skimmed through the list and haven't seen anything incorrect. I have a
question though; considering the fact that some of this data is available
in CLDR, have you ever considered integrating their data and then do a
fallback? The fallback would definitely be necessary in some cases because
your list is *way* more extensive than what CLDR currently supports.
Of course, CLDR specs lets adding new locales easily. So the ideal would be
to have a seed (with minimal information) for the locales which doesn't
exists there and are present in MW list. As CLDR is peer reviewed through
surveys targeted in-country scholars and standard body representatives,
normally the quality of the data and metadata is very good.
In the past, there was at least this one extension I know off which was
facilitating the use of CLDR data on MW:
Let me know what you think. I'd be happy to help.
