Dear Internationalization Core Working Group,

  http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/REC-charmod-20050215/#C064 is unclear
about whether and if how the following generic reference

  The Unicode Standard, Version 4, ISBN 0-321-18578-1, as updated
  from time to time by the publication of new versions. The Unicode
  Consortium, 2003. See also Versions of the Unicode Standard,
  available at http://www.unicode.org/unicode/standard/versions,
  for latest version and additional information on versions of the
  standard and of the Unicode Character Database. 

fails to meet the requirements cited in the Recommendation
(assuming publication today). In particular, it is not clear to
me whether the simple reference to new versions is sufficient or
whether e.g. corrigenda should be referenced aswell, and what is
considered "latest version of the Unicode Standard available". Is
4.1.0 already available? I.e., should this refer to

  The Unicode Standard, Version 4.1.0 defined by: ISBN 0-321-18578-1,
  as amended by Unicode 4.0.1 (http://www.unicode.org/...icode4.0.1/)
  and Unicode 4.1.0 (http://www.unicode.org/versions/Unicode4.1.0)
  and updated from time to time by the publication of new versions.

or something similar, which seems redundant but necessary for
conformance with this point? I think the Working Group should
maintain up to date text that editors can simply copy and paste
instead of what we have at the moment...

regards,
