[Bug localedata/22387] Replace unicode sequences <Uxxxx> for characters inside the ASCII printable range

I think we should not do this, as it would make locales unusable
with ebcdic encodings. I am also unsure how it will work with utf-16.

I propose you use better mnemonics for the ascii range, such as <a> for a,
etc.  That is, use the mnemonics defined in the POSIX standard for the ascii range.

best regards
