JLReq describes characters as if there is no such thing as “fullwidth” version (i.e. characters in fullwidth compatible area in Unicode). It is a part of its effort to make the description independent of the technology at the time as much as possible. It tried to separate the concept of “character” and its style such as their width, following unicode’s principle. It however made the character class appendix confusing.

As in a sense it is inherent in how JLReq is written, changing it will be a major work. I believe it would be a kind of work that should be done in the major rewrite of JLReq, or as a new document. 

(JLReq is a record of what is and have been done in print. Its line layout rules assume and sometimes dependent of the workflow that involves manual inspection and manual adjustment. It is clear that we need a line layout rules for the digital architecture. It is what I meant by the major rewrite.)
