I'm checking on that.

I'm fine with adding a mention of the ISO version as well, if they are equivalent. Are they?

I assume the ISO version is not available for free download? Since the ICC spec is, we should continue to refer to that.

As XML 5th edition specifically links to the 'latest' version of Unicode and since the I18n Core WG refer to it also in their discussions of bidi it seems clear we should refernce the latest one, too.

I'm checking on that one also.
