A problem that happens in all standards, like XML, which is why they have as
line ast the top of the XML standard that says:
"Please refer to the errata for this document, which may include some
normative corrections.Please refer to the errata for this document, which
may include some normative corrections."
With a link to errata.
This is how standards work. Given how many errata exist in some standards,
it is amazing the standard to which Unicode is held BY THE SAME PEOPLE who
appove errata elsewhere that make normative corrections.
