for example localedata/locales/translit_combining states "Generated from
UnicodeData.txt" so I was thinking if we regenerate the file again in
the future from newer upstream data then we might lost these kind of
local additions. Both Æ and Ø are in the same block so I'm also unclear
why the other was present and the other was missing in the first place.
Or am I perhaps missing something here?
