           Summary: "non-shortest form" is more established than "overlong
                    form"

http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/#overlong-form

The spec talks about "overlong form". However, "non-shortest form" is more
established Unicode jargon:
http://www.google.com/search?q=UTF-8+overlong+form
http://www.google.com/search?q=UTF-8+non-shortest+form

It would make sense to use the term "non-shortest form" in the spec.
