------- Comment #3 from cmsmcq@w3.org  2008-05-09 20:01 -------
The XML Schema working group discussed this issue today and reached the
following tentative conclusions:

  - Implementations are required to support a particular version of
    the Unicode Database and may support later versions.
  - In supporting any version of the Unicode Database, the normative
    statement of block names is that of the database (modified for use
    in regular expressions by the space-removal algorithm given in the
  - (As a result:) The list of block names given in XSD 1.0 and 1.1 is
    informative, not normative.

As a result, we are classifying the issue as editorial and instructing the
editors to clean up the problem by aligning the block names with the
appropriate version of the Unicode Database and by making clearer that the
list given is informative not normative.  The editors are also instructed
to spend a little time trying to figure out why the changes made between 
1.0 1E and 2E aren't shown with change coloring in 2E's diffed version.
