I also like this version of the charter. I do have a couple questions.
I like that phishing is out of scope, but I expect that some security related issues will come up (ie: symbols?)? I wouldn't mind pointing users to a more appropriate doc (like UTR36 or something)
I don't know how to interpret the "that removes any character mapping in the protocol" part of (iii). Perhaps I'm misreading "character mapping." I expected that many characters are expected to be removed (eg: symbols). Additionally, above it says that non-backwards compatible changes could be considered. What should my expectations be?
I've been lurking so maybe I misunderstand the current view of the "unfortunate" characters allowed in the 2003 version.
