You just replied to another question. If the request came from
maintainers of Perl, they absolutely don't need the *normative*
reference to the ISO 6429 (or any other standard than the Unicode
standard itself).

All they want is just *completeness* of the namespace ; and possibly
non ambiguities of interpretation of these names (for example to allow
reference by a more correct name in regular expressions that would
need to match, for example, parts of these names to create coherent
subsets, which are for now incoherent due to past naming errors that
can't be corrected and for which the only solution is to add aliases).
