I'd like to hear from Alexey before I do anything to this, but
this seems correct on first look.

> Control code points (including the ASCII controls U+0000 to U+001F as well as U+007F) are disallowed in the PRECIS FreeformClass, which the OpaqueString profile uses.  Thus it's not enough to just disallow non-US-ASCII codepoints (rather than implement the full OpaqueString profile) to comply with a subset of the OpaqueString profile.
