Richard Tobin has reviewed the LEIRI section of your draft
and makes the following comment for the XML Core WG.  We'd
be interested in your reply.



I have compared Martin's text with our earlier discussions, 
and it seems to match with one exception:  he excludes all 
of FFF0-FFFF, instead of just FFFE and FFFF.  He has a note 
"U+FFF0-FFFF: TODO:  Check, give these a name, and explain".

I'm not sure what the issue is with these characters, but 
to achieve our aim of not making a normative change to 
XML (etc), we need to allow FFF0-FFFD, no matter how stupid 
they are.

If we resolve this point, I think we could abandon our own 
efforts and refer to LEIRIs in our specs.
