As far as I can tell from implementations what it means is that the
NFKC normalization algorithm from Unicode is the one defined in the
latest edition of Unicode rather than that of Unicode 3.2. I don't
think the other tables from Stringprep have been modified, but I
haven't exhaustively tested that. I probably should.
