RE: Last Call: Language Tagging in Unicode Plain Text to Proposed

I just have a small comment to the proposal which is why only including
TAGGED version of ASCII characters in to the set? Why can not tags
be composed of non-ASCII characters?

It seems that we only need to have BEGIN TAG and CANCEL TAG two special
characters. All other UNICODE characters (except of course the special two)
should be allowed inside a tag. From language processing point of view,
is not more complicated than the proposed approach.

This is just my personal comment. It does not represent Compaq's or
