The Unicode Technical Committee has posted a new issue for public review
and comment. Details are on the following web page:

Review period for the new item closes on January 30, 2007.

Please see the page for links to discussion and relevant documents.
Briefly, the new issue is:

Public Review Issue #100
Giving U+00B7 MIDDLE DOT the ID_Continue Property

The character U+00B7 MIDDLE DOT has the XID_Continue property, but not the
ID_Continue property. It is the only character of this sort.

The UTC is considering removing this exception, thus making the set of
XID_Continue characters a proper subset of ID_Continue characters.

Some further details are on the Review page:
