Title:		Those Troublesome Characters: A Registry of Unicode Code Points Needing Special Consideration When Used in Network Identifiers
Document date:	2017-06-30

    Unicode's design goal is to be the universal character set for all
    applications.  The goal entails the inclusion of very large numbers
    of characters.  It is also focused on written language; special
    provisions have always been needed for identifiers.  The sheer size
    of the repertoire increases the possibility of accidental or
    intentional use of characters that can cause confusion among users,
    particularly where linguistic context is ambiguous, unavailable, or
    impossible to determine.  A registry of code points that can be
    sometimes especially problematic may be useful to guide system
    administrators in setting parameters for allowable code points in an
    identifier system, and to aid applications in creating security aids
    for users.
