FAQ's are useful, but they are not binding. They are even less binding 
than general explanation in the text of the Core specification, which 
itself doesn't rise to the that of conformance clauses and definition...

Doug's unease about the "upside-down" nature of the wording regarding 
PUA and noncharacters is something that should be addressed in revised 
text in the core specification.
