revisit translation hints

Description

Translation hints in en_ZZ have caused all sorts of problems.

When we first added

1 en_ZZ

its usage was clear: it was to be used instead of "English" everywhere in the SurveyTool.

Now that

1 [translation hint]

is all over en_ZZ, this is becoming untrue.

I think it would be cleaner to have translation hints be in their own CLDRFile - that consists of ''only'' hints, and not otherwise usable content. I really, really don't like the current strategy of having to parse en_ZZ looking for special brackets and phrases.

Also revisit all wording that discusses

1 en_ZZ
