> Please update the reference to ISO/IEC 10646-1: 2000, which ISO has recently
> published and made available. It includes 31 amendments and 3 corrigenda to
> the first (1993) edition.
> Adding an optional mapping to 10646 is a good idea. FYI, ISO is in the
> process of revising ISO 2375 (coded character set registration according to
> ISO/IEC 2022) to add the option of a 10646 mapping. However, the draft
> revision to 2375 specifies that the mapping is subject to a review process
> because we expect that implementers may be depending on such mappings.

> Title: IANA Charset Registration Procedures
> Author(s): N. Freed, J. Postel
> Status: Best Current Practice
> Date: October 2000
> Mailbox: email@example.com

> Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (MIME) (RFC-2045, RFC-2046,
> RFC-2047, RFC-2184) and various other Internet protocols are capable
> of using many different charsets. This in turn means that the ability
> to label different charsets is essential.
> Note: The charset registration procedure exists solely to associate a
> specific name or names with a given charset and to give an indication
> of whether or not a given charset can be used in MIME text objects.
> In particular, the general applicability and appropriateness of a
> given registered charset to a particular application is a protocol
> issue, not a registration issue, and is not dealt with by this
> registration procedure.
> This document specifies an Internet Best Current Practices for the
> Internet Community, and requests discussion and suggestions for
> improvements. Distribution of this memo is unlimited.
> This announcement is sent to the IETF list and the RFC-DIST list.
> Requests to be added to or deleted from the IETF distribution list
