Hi Corentin and SG16,
We discussed P1885R1 briefly in the British Standards Institute meeting yesterday.
We support the general direction of the paper and agree that it seeks to solve a real problem. We support further work.
We have significant concerns about the proposal to rely on the IANA registry and RFC2978/RFC3808 process, including a normative reference to the Character Sets database. The Character Sets database is not an International Standard and is maintained by a process that appears to provide neither the quality assurance nor the checks and balances built into the ISO process.
