Colin, thanks for your pushback; it forced us to re-read the Unicode material
dealing with case conversions.  I think that we can satisfy both the Working
Groups' intent and your last concern by inserting the word "full" as follows:

"Beginning with version 3.2.0 (and likely future versions) of Unicode, precise
mappings are described in default case operations, which are full case mappings
in the absence of tailoring for particular languages and environments."

I believe that change requires implementations of these two functions to use
both UnicodeData.txt and SpecialCasing.txt, but without application of a
"higher-level protocol" that would invoke tailoring for "particular languages
and environments".  And *that*, I'm virtually positive, satisfies the intent of
the Working Groups for these functions. 

Would you be so kind as to respond to this note indicating your level of comfort
with that solution? 

This is a PERSONAL opinion only and has not been approved by the Working Groups.
