Since I'm trying to look at text this afternoon and evening, is
there agreement that it would be wise to add a "SHOULD NOT
change the interpretation of valid strings by mapping PVALID
characters to anything else" to the portion of Protocol where
mapping is mentioned, or should (sic) I leave well enough alone?
If the former, is that a correct statement of the proposition?
Note that such a statement would make Sharp-S to "ss" mapping
not-fully-conformant to IDNA2008, even though "SHOULD" does
leave an opening...
