Idealistically, that suggests that the one standard (Unicode) should
define an "exported concept" that is what the other standard (CBOR)
needs to refer to without further complication.  The natural consequent
of that is to ask whether Unicode might already define a term which is
what CBOR needs, but given the people who have read this message thread,
if it existed, it would already have been mentioned.
