"Week Data" or "Weekend Data" in Calendar docs

Description

CLDR seems to call it "Week Data":

http://www.unicode.org/cldr/charts/32/delta/supplemental-data.html#WeekData

However, the docs use the term interchangeably with "weekend data", which can be confusing:

Either change all the "weekend data" to "week data", or replace them with something like "week/weekend data" if you still want to keep the word "weekend".

Yes, agree with "week" data. And that chart link above is misleading, it does not include the right stuff. Here is a more accurate reference: https://www.unicode.org/reports/tr35/tr35-dates.html#Week_Data

(as you see, it includes stuff that is not weekend data including the minimum number of days in a week for it to count as the first week of the year in week numbering, etc.)

Is there anything here for me to actually review?

Markus thinks that the concept was previously known as "weekend data", but when additional locales and calendars were added, the term was generalized to "week data". Therefore, we can safely change all occurrences of "weekend data" to "week data".

Peter, thoughts?
