    Ah, you're right... I missed that piece of text.

    As it stands now, I don't think this piece of text is formally
    incorrect. Note, it doesn't use the term "medial hyphens",
    and it calls out the existing exceptions explicitly.

    But I agree that the text could be improved by making a clearer
    definition of loose matching for names here -- perhaps by
    reference to UAX44-LM2. That would better account for the
    possibility of any possible additional hyphen issues in
    future character names.
