Hi Rick,

Thank you for reviewing the specification and providing us a valuable

Regarding the title of appendix E "Deriving Character Sets from XML Schema
Regular Expressions", I agree that the use of "Character Sets" can certainly
be misleading as you pointed out. Since appendix E depends on XSD regex
which in turn depends on Unicode, it might be worthwhile to reuse the same
language that is used by XSD regex to indicate the same. It appears that
XSD uses the term "set of characters" to indicate a collection of characters
with associated UCS code points. Therefore, we intend to change "character
set" in appendix E to "set of characters" to align with XSD regex description,
which makes the title "Deriving a set of characters from an XML Schema
Regular Expression".

On the other hand, we think the use of term "Character Set" in section Restricted Character Sets is accurate. Unlike appendix E
which computes a set of characters with UCS code points, this section
creates a new character set with its own code points.
