I will note that P2295's treatment of end-of-line indicators for UTF-8
source files has not yet been implemented (to my knowledge) on platforms
where text files traditionally have "out-of-band" line length information.
I am not aware of technical limitations that prevent having a convention
that works in the manner P2295 indicates, so this comment is for
information only.
