# Non-standard numbering system types taml and tamldec

## Description

###### Deleted Component: xxx-spec

The description of numbering systems in UTR 35 says "Four-letter types indicate the decimal numbering system using digits [:GeneralCategory=Nd:] for the script represented in Unicode."

This means that "taml" should indicate the decimal numbering system using Tamil digits, while any non-decimal numbering system for Tamil should use a different type value.

However, further down in the same table, "tamldec" is introduced as "modern Tamil decimal digits", and the CLDR file supplemental/numberingSystems.xml defines "taml" as an algorithmic (non-decimal) numbering system. This seems the opposite of what it should be.
