The glibc and ICU implementations of GB 18030-2005 have
non-normative mappings (not following the standard) for
the 24 PUA code point characters (as seen in my patch)
to their non-PUA equivalents.

Those mappings don't follow the printed normative standard
of GB 18030-2005, but that's OK, this is expected best practice.

Where "normative" means "part of the standard", and "non-normative"
means "not part of the standard."

Again, how does adding comments to one charmap create confusion?

Cheers,
Carlos.
