Hi all,

I am going to add one more data category set to the list. I was involved with the meeting of the Unicode Technical Committee (UTC) yesterday in the context of a proposal to add two characters to Unicode to allow for overriding of default UAX #29 segmentation behavior. Because of feedback from the W3C Internationalization Activity, the recommendation for these proposed characters will be that they are for use in plain text environments only. The UTC strongly urged that if Unicode adopts the proposed characters that somebody develop a functionally comparable markup solution so that there is parity in markup and nonmarkup environments. Since I just happened to know of an appropriate standards activity for that sort of thing ;-) I thought I'd make a proposal for consideration. I'll post it in the next few days for discussion and consideration.

f you all think it's terrible, then I can say I tried, but if you think it's worth consideration, then we may have a good home for this.
