I have started building a normalization page in our wiki here:


For starters, I pasted, verbatim, the normative text from CharMod-Norm (http://www.w3.org/TR/charmod-norm) into the document. Below that I started a section called "Draft Recommendations" into which I began to boil and sift the various things we'd need to say normatively if we were to revise Charmod-Norm.

Obviously, the recommendations are very rough. Changing to non-normalization of content leads to requirements that I'm not sure this WG intends--there is a tendency to need to forbid normalization ever occur.

Anyway, it is something to start from.

Internationalization is not a feature.
It is an architecture.
