Thanks. I do indeed see ISO/IEC TR 30112:2014 for sale (chf 198).

However, I can't confirm that the working draft is identical to
the final published copy, the glibc relevant i18ln data might
have been removed before publication (doubtful).

I have not emailed fsf legal about this issue, and I don't
plan to do so because it might confuse the issue, and I myself
am not a lawyer so I can't make any judgement here.
