Hi

I got around to read the paper.

Some questions:

Do you really require Unicode/10646 for the new specs?
Why not allow normal POSIX/C/C++ character types?

Another point: It is not necessary to normalize strings to
compare strings using locale aware string comparison.
This is probably a little known fact.

Best regards
Keld
