From: <>
Date: Mon, 31 Mar 2014 15:08:45 -0700

Proposed updates are now available for /UTR #36, Unicode Security
Considerations/, and /UTS #39, Unicode Security Mechanisms/. These are
both being updated to correspond with Unicode 7.0.

PRI #272, Proposed Update UTR #36, Unicode Security Considerations
This UTR is being updated. In this draft, a description has been added
about the downside of displaying URLs as Punycode. A note has also been
added on the use of Catalan in identifiers.

PRI #273, Proposed Update UTS #39, Unicode Security Mechanisms
This UTS is being updated to correspond with Unicode 7.0. Text has been
added about the use of NFC, and on the use of Catalan in identifiers. A
note has been added on the collection of confusable data outside of
Status=allowed, such as for non-NFKC characters.

Review notes solicit feedback on whether to (a) add multi-character
sequences to the data file, (b) change some of the Type values, and (c)
base the data more on CLDR exemplars, and/or (d) change the format of
the data files.

The closing date for both of these issues is April 28, 2014. For
information about how to discuss this Public Review Issue and how to
supply formal feedback, please see the feedback and discussion
instructions on the PRI pages.
