Hi Tom,

OpenOffice is listed along with many OpenSource projects in the "who uses"

So i wonder if there is a good reason why LibreOffice didn't use it because
at first glance it looks fairly fantastic to me.  Is there some politics or
licensing that makes it difficult for LibreOffice to be involved or was it
just not as useful as it's looks at first glance or some other good reason
for not being involved?

LibreOffice uses CLDR to the same extent (or more) as
did. Just that it is not listed there (care to change that? ;-)  In fact
OOo contributed its locale data to the CLDR back when CLDR was created.
However, CLDR does not provide all locale data LibreOffice needs, or
differently, and is not a global cure for all locale problems.

Getting back to the initial question, would it be difficult to list the
languages each in their own language?

See my reply there, for me as a developer adding language entries it
would be at least more difficult.
