No argument there!

My initial question can be rephrased as the following remark/change request: could make it more clear that “stability extensions” means `Other_ID_Start` and `Other_ID_Continue`, respectively. At the moment it lists an incomplete formula: it’s explicit about all the categories and properties to include to form `ID_Start` and `ID_Continue` _except for those_, for seemingly no good reason.
