Decision: Rejected In your comment, you mention the case that a spec depends on a particular version of Unicode. In this case, it is not a generic reference, but a specific reference. The difference is given in http://www.w3.org/TR/charmod/#C063. If a spec follows this, then it will use a generic reference to indicate that future codepoints allocated can be used, and it will use a specific reference if it has to reference a particular version of e.g. normalization, character properties, or so. Then if that spec is updated, the generic reference can be updated to the latest version of Unicode without problems, but the specific reference is not changed, unless there is an explicit decision that a the newer version e.g. of normalization or character properties should be used.
