Ah, I should have known that, thanks.
(Perhaps I already did, at one stage.)

I seem to recall that last time I checked unicode.xml, (which again might not reflect the current state of things) Barbara had added many more names to her own table. Not that I'm saying unicode.xml necessary needs to be comprehensive in this area especially as things are still a little unstable.

I've spoken at one stage with some ConTeXt/LuaTeX people about creating a "master" table (written in Lua of course) from which all such tables could be derived according to their purpose. Didn't exactly go anywhere at the time but the idea is lingering.
