Per FSF statement  the locale files are not copyrightable so IMO
attribution matters only so much as we care to thank the previous
authors for their work. Such previous authors already have attribution
in the Changelog, and IMO need not have any more attribution in the
source file, just like we don't use "Contributed by" anymore.
In summary I suggest:
- Remove the old data.
- Use "Based on Unicode Common Locale Data Repository (CLDR)"
When we get to 100% data coming from CLDR then we'll delete "Based on"
(which implies we have local modifications).
