It is not clear to me whether consideration has been made regarding contextual rules for characters introduced in Unicode 6.0. Classifying such characters as disallowed may have adverse consequences down the track. It was my understanding that such characters would be classified as CONTEXTO without having a rule, and were thus invalid for registration until a rule was proposed.

I think it would be valuable to add a paragraph to the draft to clarify that we have not considered contextually valid characters, should this be the case.
