Since I'm continuing the terminology thread, I think it
might be appropriate to clear up a wrong impression I
may have left yesterday in my quick response to Marco. I said:

The original UTC document that spurred the discussion on the
UTC list that later spilled over onto this list did, in fact,
ask for wide-ranging feedback on a number of terminological
issues related to character and code point types. I personally
disagreed with where the discussion headed and with a number
of the suggestions that were made. But I don't want to leave
the impression that anybody was acting inappropriately on
the list by in fact providing the kind of feedback that was
requested in the original document.
