PRI #203 Proposed Update for UTS #10: Unicode Collation Algorithm

This proposed update aligns with Unicode 6.1, and includes the following

* A major revision to the ordering of variable characters into groups,
separating punctuation and symbols. Some other characters have changed
ordering as well.
* A new option for sorting, IgnoreSP, that ignores (shifts) only
whitespace and punctuation (and not general symbols)
* Clarifications or fixes to text on soft-hyphen, contiguous weights,
and collation grapheme clusters.
* A new section on asymmetric search.
* Review notes for new UCA verification tables, and several other areas
where the text will be changed.
