Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale:

For the W3C spec: The WG has decided to remove the Unicode names everywhere, so
that would (once I implement that change) be inconsistent.

For the WHATWG spec: Dude the table is way too big already. Just look up the
code if you need the name. It's much more likely that you'd already have the
name and code and would be looking for the char ref name for it.
