I'm sure Eric knows the explanation below on how to reference Unicode
and / or ISO 10464 ...
see esp. http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/REC-charmod-20050215/#C062
"Since specifications in general need both a definition for their
characters and the semantics associated with these characters,
specifications SHOULD include a reference to the Unicode Standard,
whether or not they include a reference to ISO/IEC 10646."
I think this is applicable also for this case.
