This document was one we discussed at IETF 79 in Beijing, and the
chairs and ADs recommend that the appsawg working group adopt, review,
and discuss it.

The document deals with bringing IDNAbis (IDNA 2008) up to the Unicode
6.0 level.  At issue are three particular code points that have been
reclassified by Unicode 6.0.

While we discussed the document in Beijing, it has changed since then,
in that its recommendation is very different to the version that was
posted at the time.  This is the abstract from the -01 version, posted
in December:

   This document specifies IETF consensus related to and changes made to
   Unicode when version 6.0 was released on Oct 11 2011.  The consensus
   is that no update is needed to RFC 5892 based on the changes made in
   Unicode 6.0.

The appsawg chairs will be looking for objections to accepting this as
a working group document; please make such objections by 4 Feb.  In
any case, please review the document and comment on it.  We'd like to
see whether the applications area supports the consensus claim made in
the abstract above, or does not... so please post comments either way.

Barry, appsawg chair
