I think this is relevant to us, since TMQL almost certainly will have
a Unicode-based syntax. We should think through these issues and have
some sort of resolution to them, even if it simply is to ignore the
whole thing. :)

This notice is relevant to anyone dealing with programming languages, query
specifications, regular expressions, scripting languages, and similar domains.

The Proposed Draft UTR #31: Identifier and Pattern Syntax will be discussed at
the UTC meeting next week. Part of that document (Section 4) is a proposal for
two new immutable properties, Pattern_White_Space and Pattern_Syntax. As
immutable properties, these would not ever change once they are introduced into
the standard, so it is important to get feedback on their contents beforehand.

The UTC will not be making a final determination on these properties at this
meeting, but it is important that any feedback on them is supplied as early in
the process as possible so that it can be considered thoroughly. The draft is
found at http://www.unicode.org/reports/tr31/ and feedback can be submitted as
described there.
