References to the Unicode standard (as indicated in the editor notes in the linked meeting summary) and/or WhatWG Encoding Standard are advised. This also includes specifying how wide strings are handled; presumably each wchar_t value in an ill-formed code unit sequence would be formatted as a single hex escape.

Since C++ is an ISO standard, normative references to other ISO standards
(e.g. ISO 10646) as opposed to third-party standards (e.g. Unicode) are
preferred, per ISO policy.
