In this revision, the following substantive changes were made.
The term "combining mark" was more clearly defined.
A definitive lists of "all other control code points (e.g., Cc)

Lists provided in the Prohibit step were replaced with
references to equivalent tables in [Stringprep].

algorithms. Please verify correctness of all lists and
