klensin has just created a new issue for 
https://github.com/w3c/charmod-norm:

== Case Folding (Section 2.1) - Sharp S example ==
I recommend not using Sharp S as an example.   While the explanation 
is consistent with the Unicode one, with the introduction of U+1E9E, 
one of the main arguments for that particular "case" folding/ mapping 
has dissolved into "stability", i.e., "we did it that way before so we
 need to continue" (not necessarily a bad argument, but different from
 "need to map to "SS" because there is no upper case and then back to 
"ss").   There is also a case to be made that the appropriateness or 
inappropriateness of that mapping is narrowly locale-dependent and is 
seems to me that this section doesn't want to go there.
