Re: Unicode normalization appendix (Re: [Minutes] MLW-LT call 2013-04-17)

I think moving it to the introduction would be proactive.

the point of the appendix is *not* to be specific to selected parts of 
ITS 2.0 processing. No section mentions *Unicode* normalization, but 
only white space normalization (in the NIF section) and case folding in 
the "mapping of local data categories to HTML" section.

I think it is good that no section mentions Unicode normalization. The 
idea of the appendix is make people aware of Unicode normalization and 
not to impose requirements to specific ITS processing steps. But if you 
think this should be more prominent we could move the appendix to the 
non-normative introduction. Thoughts?
