Subject: UAX #44 documentation issue
An item came up in the ed meeting. In UAX
#44, there is the line:
- A few properties
of the enumerated type have multiple default values. In those cases,
comments in the file explain the code point ranges for applicable
values. See Table 4.
It would be very bad if the only documentation of the default values
for characters in the files were in comments.
My presumption is that any default value that is not in an @missing
is marked explicitly on elements in the file. For example, 0590
below. If that is the case, we should document it in UAX 44. If not,
then Houston, we have a problem.
