Minor nit: I dislike normatively stating that a null character is

be demoted to a note.
That seems reasonable to me, I'll do so.

In the normative text, AFAICT, in C++20 wide multi character
literals must be supported, with an implementation-defined value,
but after this paper they will be conditionally supported.  I don’t
see that design change addressed in the front matter.  Same
applies to non-encodable wide characters .

That is addressed in the "Proposed resolution overview" section.  I can add a statement about this to the introduction if you like.

I've been under the impression that the lack of conditionally-supported for these is an oversight.  My understanding (and someone please correct me if I'm mistaken; I don't recall where I was informed of this) is that, in the C standard, implementation-defined includes an allowance for rejecting the code as ill-formed, but in the C++ standard, implementation-defined implies well-formed; hence the addition of conditionally-supported.  If that understanding is correct, then the updated wording corrects alignment with the intent of the C standard.

(I thought this also applied to ordinary multi character literals,
but it turns out they are already conditionally supported.)

Yup, in [lex.ccon]p1.

This addresses the feedback provided on the core mailing list in the thread starting at https://lists.isocpp.org/core/2020/06/9455.php.

Wording review feedback prior to the next Core issues processing teleconference would be much appreciated!
