Cyprus, Europe, region containment

Description

Cypress as currently defined in supplementalData.xml is causing problem with the region containment hierarchy. It appears in both region 150 (Europe) and 142 (Asia).

CLDR defines region 150 (Europe) as including the EU:

1 2 3 <group type="150" contains="154 155 151 039"/> <!--Europe --> <group type="150" contains="EU" status="grouping"/> <!--Europe --> <group type="150" contains="QU" status="deprecated"/> <!--Europe -->

And the group EU, for the European Union, includes Cypress, as it should.

1 <group type="EU" contains="AT BE CY CZ DE DK EE ES FI FR GB GR HR HU IE IT LT LU LV MT NL PL PT SE SI SK BG RO" grouping="true"/> <!-- European Union, see http://europa.eu/abc/european_countries/index_en.htm -->
1 2 3 Cypress is geographically in Asia, so we also have from CLDR: <group type="142" contains="145 143 030 034 035"/> <!--Asia --> <group type="145" contains="AE AM AZ BH CY GE IL IQ JO KW LB OM PS QA SA SY TR YE"/> <!--Western Asia -->

A possible fix would be to remove EU from 150 (Europe), effectively removing Cypress.
