Just one editorial comment, I think that the initial registration code
point of 0x8 (hex) is potentially confusing, is it the 8th bit, or the
or bit 3?  The bit positions range from 0 to 2047 and are easier to
understand in decimal, especially with the registration ranges given
in decimal.  So in this document, and in the IANA registry, the code
points should be decimal.
