Updated record for 'u' in Extensions Registry

I agree that the overlong record for extension ‘u’ needs to be corrected.

According to RFC 6067 itself:

Per Section 5.2 of [BCP47]<http://tools.ietf.org/html/bcp47#section-5.2>, there
   might be occasional (rare) requests by the Unicode Consortium (the
   "Authority" listed in the record) for maintenance of this record.

Thus, the correct target audience for this should be the Unicode Consortium (and presumably the CLDR-TC of same), as they are the Authority capable of requesting maintenance. To help facilitate this, perhaps file a bug in their Tracker? [1]

Hi Doug,

Sorry for not responding your message.

I read your message in January, but I did not understand what action was expected.
Because other co-authors (Mark and Addison) have more experience with IETF process, I expected they take some necessary actions.

Could you tell us how we can proceed further?
