Please don't remove the bullet but change it to say that until 6.1.0
NamesList.txt used Latin-1 and starting with 6.2.0 it uses UTF-8. (This
affects the Revision 9 notes too.)

Something like "Until and including Unicode 6.1.0, NamesList.txt was
encoded in Latin-1. Since Unicode 6.2.0 it uses UTF-8."

We should tell implementers that they have to switch encodings if they read
different versions of that file.

Otherwise d2 looks good to me.
