In this example, is the UCN intending to mean the conventionally mapped
EBCDIC control character, or something else?

Beyond EBCDIC control characters, do we know of any other situation
where input-to-Unicode mapping is not semantics-preserving or lossy?
It would be good to keep a list in one of the upcoming papers, for
the permanent record.
