Effectively, the utilities support "searching" the code charts. But the 
way it is syntactically expressed (using the \p operator)makes it look 
like a "porperty".

Now, if the utilities were able to search the core spec (and all UAXs) 
and look up under what headers (in what sections) the character is 
described of discussed, that would make it clearer that this is a search.

It would also be beyond nifty.
