Hello Yung-Fong,

First, please send potential error reports to xml-editor@w3.org
as indicated in the spec. Second, as somebody else has already
said, the XML Core WG is working on extending the repertoire of
XML Names in XML Blueberry / XML 1.1.

If you have any specific comments, I suggest you send them to
the W3C I18N IG for discussion.

Regards,   Martin.
