oops I just fixed that in the xml sources (it may be too late for the 
next draft, which is hopefully imminent)

Yes sorry, it's all generated from unicode.xml same as the entities 
draft and the mathml dtd


warning this is a bit big you may want to save to file rather than load 
it into the browser (where it will style itself as an html table)

http://www.w3.org/2003/entities/2007xml/unicode.xml

look for entries of the form:

....


          <operator-dictionary form="infix" lspace="4" rspace="4" 
priority="390"/>
          <description unicode="1.1">MULTIPLICATION SIGN</description>
       </character>

a RelaxNG schema and other tools for that file are linked from
