Hi, Gustavo, and thanks for addressing my comments.

On just one point:

OK, I'm going to go ahead and send this out for last call, but I'm
also going to ask the I18N Directorate to have a closer look at this
and see what they think.  I do think it's time we make it clear that
we are deprecating the use of encodings other than UTF-8 to represent
Unicode in our protocols.  5370 is well over 10 years old now, and I
don't really buy that we have to remain aligned with it today.
