Re: [PLS1.0] i18n comment: Section 5.3

Issue R103-31
>From Richard Ishida (2006-03-21):

Proposed Classification: Clarification / Typo / Editorial 

Resolution: Reject 

The examples in section 5.3 [1] do not strictly contain homophones. A
pair of homophones is two different *words* (thus, with two different
*meanings*) that have the same pronunciation. Each example in 5.3
contains one word that can be written in different ways and that retains
the same meaning and pronunciation. 

We think that "Multiple Orthographies" is a common phenomenon and worth
to be presented in a separate section with examples and explanations. 

Please indicate whether you are satisfied with the VBWG's resolution,
whether you think there has been a misunderstanding, or whether you wish
to register an objection.

We don't see any value in the additional examples in 5.3, since all
examples are instances of homographs or homophones (or expansions, which
are not referred to here). Why not skip this and go straight into 5.4?
