    I think if you describe some higher-level encoding (say, an XML schema), it's necessary to refer to Unicode standard code points within it. So even if the listing of the code points is not sufficient for a meaningful text file, it is still a necessary component of the standardization.

    Look at the ASCII-based representation used by Wiktionary. That seems to be linearly-oriented.
