The proposed changes add a normative reference to NameAliases.txt and, hopefully, clean up the presentation some.

In general, I'm uneasy to refer to normative resources maintained outside
of the ISO system. In ISO, I know what the process of revision and review
is; for external resources, I don't. ISO probably has a way to publish
machine-readable files alongside a standard, too. It appears that
WG2 is following a different approach for ISO 10646, though.

I seems this comment is addressed to Corentin, who reported difficulties
in the first place?
