    OK but you probably did not notice that the Corrigendum #1, published after
    Unicode 4.0, refers to a backward version of ISO/IEC 10646-1:2000, which is
    not the version ISO/IEC 10646:2003 refered in Unicode 4.0. This added
    reference in the Corrigendum (not in the first publication of Unicode 4.0)
    is then confusive...
