Re: [SG16] Reminder: SG16 telecon tomorrow (Wednesday, 2020-05-27)

With respect to P1859:
-Basic source character set
-: The abstract characters that must be representable in the _character
set_ used for source code
+Source character set
+: The abstract characters that must be representable in the internal
_character set_ used after phase 1 of translation. All characters not in
the source character set are converted to universal-character-names, which
are made up of characters from the basic character set. The abstract parser
only sees characters in the source character set.

There is no "Basic" source character set. There is the character set the
lexer and parser uses that is available after the implementation defined
conversion from whatever was presented as source.
I don't think anyone understands that, outside CWG.
Having more precision around the values emitted into narrow, wide, and uN
literals from the execution character set, and what happens when that fails
I still believe would be useful.

Perhaps for 26 we could rewrite entirely in terms of processing code points
and occasionally "orginal spelling". It would be nice if the logical model
was closer to what the physical model is.
