For your information, here is a copy of a recent post I made privately
with an existing UTC member.


I just posted two new feedbacks (using the feedback form) related to
the proposed alias names. These feedbacks are all related to recent
decisions taken this year (in February) after a PRI...

One concerns NBHY, present in UAX #14 since Unicode 5.0.1, and which
contains a list of other candidate aliases, after a decision made in:
 - PRI #105 (Proposed Update to UAX #14: Line Breaking Properties),
Another concerns to recent decisions taken, related to "code point labels". See:
 - PRI #132 (Code Point Name/Label Options) that closes some options
(notably of *not* defining a new character property for referencing
characters, as the result of adopting option D...), and the related
 - PRI #129 (Code Point Labels: Suggested Wording Details) which
suggested a naming scheme for short aliases.

The consistancy of those decisions requires some investigation, at at
least this means that new aliases must all be individually studied and
clearly justified. If there's a justification, it would be more
importantly coming from the released texts of Unicode Standard itself
(UTS), or its Standard Annexes (UAX), or the ISO 10646 standard,
before any other considerations (including UTR, UTN, ISO standards
other than ISO 10646, or any other standards).
