Hi I got around to read the paper.
Some questions: Do you really require Unicode/10646 for the new specs?
Why not allow normal POSIX/C/C++ character types?
Another point: It is not necessary to normalize strings to compare strings using locale aware string comparison. This is probably a little known fact.
