Hello Chris,

I haven't heard from you on which way you would prefer to address
the issue you brought up. I have decided to address it by adding
"(see Section 5.3 for details)", so that Variant C) now reads:

 >>>>>>>>
Variant C) If the IRI is in an Unicode-based character encoding
    (for example UTF-8 or UTF-16): Do not normalize (see Section
    5.3 for details).  Apply Step 2 directly to the encoded Unicode
    character sequence.
 >>>>>>>>

I'm moving this issue to 'tentatively closed', and plan to move
it to 'closed' very soon. If you don't agree with how I have
addressed the issue, please reply asap, with actual text.

Regards,    Martin.
