Ok, let's discuss on F2F.

I actually tried the other way, only to figure out that defining CJK text normatively isn't an easy task, especially for punctuation characters. I'd like to avoid lengthy definitions added unless it has clear benefits.

I'm not clear on the benefits of doing so, as I think the purpose of the property is pretty clear from the paragraph after the note. It'd be helpful if you could clarify the benefits, or wordings proposal.
