I disapprove of the RFC style of giving ad hoc names to Unicode characters. I
object to using that style in HTML5.

I want to see the Unicode code point in the U+hhhh notation and the literal
character inline in the spec prose without indirection. I don't care about the
UPPERCASE UNICODE NAME, but what's in the spec now works for me.
