           Summary: Regex: Names of Unicode code blocks
           Product: XML Schema
           Version: 1.1 only
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Datatypes: XSD Part 2
        AssignedTo: cmsmcq@w3.org
        ReportedBy: mike@saxonica.com

XML Schema Part 2 in 1.1 references Unicode 4.1 rather than Unicode 3.1.

Some of the names of code blocks, as used in constructs like \p{IsGreek}, have
changed in different versions of Unicode, for example Greek is now "Greek and
Coptic". This change has not been reflected in the list of allowed block names;
nor is it clear how the change should be reflected, given the need for
backwards compatibility.
