    The condition, "More formally, for given versions V and U of Unicode, and
    any two characters X and Y that are both assigned according to both V and
    U::" could usefully be clarified by replacing 'two characters X and Y' by
    'two distinct characters X and Y'. Readers may not assume that all parts of
    a Unicode declaration are true, so the freedom to make a character lowercase
    and add an uppercase partner might not be believed.
