First thing I spotted: the syntax in 5.1 is missing the trailing quote mark.

Section 4 is missing the references to ISO-C and Java.

Section 2.1 item 3: "control characters" needs to be properly defined,
since it's a SHOULD. Unicode.org is currently offline, but at the least
you either need to make it explicit ranges (say U+0000 to U+001F and U+007F
to U+009F), or base it on a Unicode character class.
