Comment title: How to avoid use of the term 'character'?
Comment:
Section 3.1.7, "Summary", contains a paragraph that reads: "[S] When specifications use the term 'character' it MUST be clear which of the possible meanings they intend. [S] Specifications SHOULD avoid the use of the term 'character' if a more specific term is available."

This paragraph would be considerably more useful if it either contained a list of the possible meanings or contained a pointer to another location in the document that provides such a list.
