So you agree, at least in principle, with Markus Kuhn's suggestion that
the passage in Section 5.2 might be better as:
"The alpha-2 code uses combinations, in upper case, of two letters of
the 26-character Latin script (ignoring diacritic signs) from the range
AA to ZZ."
I suppose the numerous qualifications in this sentence are sufficient to
identify the particular set of 676 code elements. In technical usage,
the range from "A to Z" is not usually expected to include Á or Þ.
Some other parts of the draft, such as Section 6.2, will require similar
editing to change "Roman alphabet" to "Latin script."
