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

W2 -> WG2 everywhere.

I think I'm not in the business of advising WG2 how to best
construct future revisions of ISO 10646. If you believe my
feedback above might be useful to WG2, go ahead and forward
it as you see fit.

Beyond that, I would hope that communication on issues in
ISO 10646 could be made a little more interactive than
tossing N-numbered papers around with a latency of >1 month.
