week numbers need to be sorted out (plural, ordinals, etc.)

Description

Split-off from bug: bug:9778

Per reporter:

<dateFormatItem id="MMMMW" count="one">'vecka' W 'i' MMM</dateFormatItem>

Does not make much sense, too fuzzy, no formal definition of "week in month" cutoff day.
Furthermore: NEVER used in Scandinavia (at least).

<dateFormatItem id="MMMMW" count="other">'vecka' W 'i' MMM</dateFormatItem>

Does not make sense for any language; always singular week! (Showstopper...)

<dateFormatItem id="yw" count="one">'vecka' w, y</dateFormatItem>

While this one does make sense (for those of us that actually adhere to the ISO standard, like in Scandinavia), basically only administrators use it. "Ordinary people" just get confused and have to look up when it is, which is
a constant problem). For those not really using the ISO standard, this one does not make sense, even for administrators.

<dateFormatItem id="yw" count="other">'vecka' w, y</dateFormatItem>

Does not make sense for any language; always singular week! (Showstopper...)
