Any particular reason why someone (I volunteer if no one else does) can't type int the conformance section (it is plain English text if it is like the 3.0 chapter 3)?
Also I would be curious how many copies of this extant and extinct book were actually sold so I know how hard it will be to find a copy. OK, I know *I* can find a copy at a colleague and have them photocopy the relelevant section for me, but what about the rank and file developer?
Is this a good thing for this standard to exist only in a long out of print book? RFCs, even the obsoleted ones, live forever online in numerous archives...shouldn't Unicode strive for the same immortality?
I am asking about v2 for a selfish reason, but everything above might as well be about v1 also .....
