    The Unicode conformance clauses, in TUS 4.0 section 3.2, are written in
    terms of what "A process" may or may not do, sometimes in relation to
    "another process". But there doesn't seem to be a definition, either on
    this section or in the glossary, of "process". Is this to be understood
    in a general non-technical sense, or in some specific technical sense?
    What makes "a process" distinct from "another process"? Are two
    instances carrying out the same function to be considered the same
    process or distinct processes?
