    It seems to me that a little reflection would reveal that it is easiest
    to make properties normative when they are *not* informative, beyond
    whatever it is that they uniquely specify. There were very good reasons
    to make both code points and character names normative; people assume
    that the latter are informative, and that's where we get into trouble.
    No one argues about the fact that Ƣ is U+01A2; only its name is a "problem".
