I believe that I understand why this step says 'do not normalize'
(otherwise, certain Unicode strings couldnever be used in query parts,
for example).

However, as the two preceding steps say 'normalize' and this step says
'do not normalize' the reader could be confused - or perhaps consider it
an 'obvious error'.

Do not tease the reader like this. Please explain *why* at this stage no
normalization is performed.
