    PRI #179: Changes to Unicode Regular Expression Guidelines

    The Unicode Consortium is considering changes to UTS #18 Unicode Regular
    Expressions ( These proposed changes
    have arisen in connection with questions about case-insensitive and
    canonical-equivalent matching.

    The proposed changes eliminate some requirements on implementations of
    Unicode Regular Expressions which have proven to be problematic in
    implementations, and add clarifications. The consortium is soliciting
    feedback on these changes.
