> [Editorial][Nit] In this section, the characters "1" and "0" are referred to using ABNF %31 and %30 respectively. Generally when referring to characters, we prefer to see the Unicode U+NNNN notation used also so that it is clear that you are referring to the character value and not a byte value.

The parenthetical notes of (%x31) and (%x30) have been removed in r1.272 because they are truly unnecessary and make the prose harder to read.  There is no
need to use U+NNNN notation here.
