    My idea would be for the new names to be used in ALL contexts. As for
    the text of the standard, probably the best thing would be to use only
    the U+xxxx forms of the names to avoid giving official recognition to
    the new names, at least in cases where there is a difference between the
    deprecated and new names. After all, it would look very odd for the text
    to include misspelled words like BRAKCET.
