Thanks for reminding me; an note was to be added to that effect. I've added
that to a new version, and sent it to the editorial committee for checking.
Should be live early next week.

Subject: Inherited-script characters
> Last December, Mark Davis indicated that a passage similar to the

> > Whatever their script property values, characters with general
> > categories of Mn and Me should also inherit their script from their
> > base character. The nominal script property value for these characters
> > may be different from INHERITED in cases where the best interpretation

> proposed to be upgraded to a UAX). This is a reasonable change, but a
> change nonetheless. I complained briefly about the extra overhead, then
