I've tried to put everything in only one set of classes but it was 
difficult to merge those different concepts without introducing some 
redundant code lines (hopefully there are not so numerous).

DecimalFormat includes also some important fixes concerning exponential

I haven't yet had time to dig into these collation rules. If we only had 
the complete collation rules for 'en' it should already be great (and 
would fix a great number of failures in mauve).


P.S.: DateFormatTest seems to have "fixed" itself ;). It seems there is 
a miscomputation somewhere.
