Last December, Mark Davis indicated that a passage similar to the
following would (or should) be added to UTR #24, "Script Names":
> Whatever their script property values, characters with general
> categories of Mn and Me should also inherit their script from their
> base character. The nominal script property value for these characters
> may be different from INHERITED in cases where the best interpretation
> of that character in isolation would be a specific script.
This meant that implementations would need to take the General Category,
not just the script name, into account when interpreting UTR #24 (now
proposed to be upgraded to a UAX). This is a reasonable change, but a
change nonetheless. I complained briefly about the extra overhead, then
got over it and added it to my "Scripts" program.
In the proposed update to #24, I don't see anything about treating
characters with a General Category of "Mn" or "Me" differently. Was the
change scuttled, or just overlooked?
