    I just noticed, in the WG2 character charts for Amendment 2 of Part 1,
    that U+1D25 is called LATIN LETTER AIN but U+1D5C is MODIFIER LETTER
    SMALL AIN. Where did the word SMALL come from? All the other modifier
    letters are called CAPITAL or SMALL (or both) to denote the case of the
    underlying letter, not to point out that a modifier letter is smaller
    than a normal letter.

    If U+1D25 is to be LATIN LETTER AIN -- not CAPITAL or SMALL -- then a
    more consistent name for U+1D5C would be MODIFIER LETTER AIN.
