Hello Richard,

Many thanks for your response and the followups.
The I18N WG Core Task Force has discussed your response today.
It has given myself the following action:

Action Martin: To confirm Misha's comments as official WG/TF comments.
                To check section 9 and add comments if necessary
                (in particular, there may be no need for a syntax definition)
                'character' may be well defined, but not
                'character-by-character identity'

I'm contacting you today because it was my understanding from what
Francois Yergeau said today at our teleconference that the CR would
be finalized by your WG tomorrow, and that a link to the draft
as it currently stands would be in the mail. However, from your
mail below, I gather that you need our response by Dec 9th.
Can you confirm this, and give me a link to your current editing
version, so that I can check section 9?

Regards,    Martin.
